#terms #erl12


Join a group think exercise on expanding/responding to the TERMS project started by Jill Emery & Graham Stone. The discussion will focus on the six separate TERMS of the ER lifecycle: Investigation of resources, acquisitions of resources, implementation of resources, evaluation and ongoing access of resources, annual review of resources, and cancellation and replacement of resources in small groups and then feed into a larger discussion of the ER lifecycle overall. The current TERMS as outlined here: will be the basis of the discussions. All ER&L conference attendees are invited to participate in what is sure to be a lively discussion period.
