Libraries have been struggling with dual management of eResources and print resources for years. eResouce management workflows are especially challenging. Over time, some libraries have created processes and “systems” to help manage this information along with using knowledgebases and discovery management services from companies like Serials Solutions.

Next-generation library services promise to combine print and e-management for optimal efficiency. ERMs have been available for a number of years to help address challenges with eResources, but what is their role, given the recent announcement of web-scale management systems? Do they have one? Can they play a part in getting ready for your next library platform? Why should a library consider using an ERM now?

To learn the answer to these questions and join us at the 2012 Charleston Conference and attend the session “Getting Your ERM Affairs in Order” presented by Ashley Bass, Senior Product Manager at Serials Solutions, Anne Prestamo, Associate Dean for Collection and Technology Services at Oklahoma State University, and Phyllis Kaiden, Senior Product Manager at Serials Solutions. This lively lunch will look at some specific workflows and how they are handled today without ERM, where ERM brings efficiency, and where there are gaps. They will talk about the relationship between organizing eResources with an ERM and the migration to web-scale and where web-scale will bring new features and efficiency.

Register for the Charleston Conference and don’t forget to attend this lively lunch on November 8.
