Next-generation ERM system: '360 Resource Manager' helping to tame the e-world

Abstract

Libraries today spend more than 60% of their budget on electronic resources. Instead of making life and work easier, these changes have created additional work and collections are incredibly complex to manage. The key to meeting customer needs in the library is being able to manage library collections effectively, and consequently to better connect users and researchers to the information they need. This requires not only the ability to choose and maintain access to e‐resource titles, but to efficiently organize metadata about the library's subscriptions. Serials Solutions' electronic management (ERM) system, '360 Resource Manager', was developed to take advantage of what they believe is the industry's leading e‐resource knowledgebase, integration and interoperability with multiple services and systems, flexible architecture, and consortia support to allow library staff to spend more time on data analysis and assessment than on maintaining subscription metadata.
