The ALCTS/LITA Electronic Resources Management Interest Group is hosting a panel put together by the ALCTS Acquisitions Section’s Acquisitions Technology Committee. Their meeting is titled “Meeting the E-Resources Challenge: Utilizing ERMS in Libraries.”

As libraries add more electronic resources to their collections, systems have been developed to centralize management of licensed records and provide efficient workflows within Technical Services. Are ERMS (Electronic Resources Management Systems) the ultimate solution in managing the ever-increasing complexities of electronic resources? Learn from librarians who have worked with ERMS and can provide advice that will help your library develop best practices in managing electronic resources.

Presenters slated for this panel:
Wendolyn Vermeer, Cal Poly Pomona University Library (Pomona, CA)
Rose Reynolds, Smith College Libraries (Northampton, MA)

Hi, everyone!

Thank you for attending, and than you, Wendy and Rose, for your presentations. The session was the start of what I think will be a great conversation, so please watch here for more information on where and how that ongoing conversation will be taking place.

In the meantime, the session slides are attached here as a single PDF. Please contact me here or at if you have any questions or comments.

I have created a discussion thread at where you can ask questions and share experiences with the different electronic-resource management systems (ERMS). Come get the support you're looking for in your ERMS decision!
