Managing e-Resources in Libraries


ERMS, Implementation

Learning Objectives

1. Following this session, participants will be able to apply best practices to implementing or improving the use of their own ERMS, based on feedback and experience from other libraries using the same or different systems 2. Make more informed decisions as they evaluate the variety of ERMS options available and make judgemenets about pruchase and implementation


There's a cornucopia of ERM systems available, and a variety of ways to implement and use an ERMS to derive the greatest value. In a Q&A with panelists from libraries using at least four different ERMS, the session presents an opportunity to learn from your colleagues' experiences as they discuss implementation choices, best practices, and lessons learned with the systems. Product Representatives will also be on-hand to offer input on features and development.
