Abstract

With the emerging trend to migrate collections to 'e' only, it is becoming increasingly important for librarians to be able to manage e‐resources effectively. Electronic resource management (ERM) systems are intended to assist librarians with simplifying their daily management tasks, but many librarians have reported that the effort to input resource data can be overwhelming, leading to increased staff workload and resulting in an ERM that cannot be implemented and used.The next‐generation ERM system 'ERM Essentials', created by EBSCO, is explained and reviewed as an example of a system that can be easily implemented with readily available data from customers' order history. Some of the drawbacks with earlier systems are considered, and the hopes for future systems with added functionality are explored.
