Electronic Resource Management (ERM) is a specialization that impacts and is impacted by the work of librarians in public services, technical services and systems. All Library and Information Science (LIS) students that wish to work in libraries should have exposure to the standards, concepts and practices of ERM. While many LIS programs convey this knowledge in bits and pieces through existing courses, such as information organization, reference, collection management, acquisitions and serials, and information policy, other LIS programs pull this knowledge together into a single course. The objectives of this session are to 1) share successes and lessons learned from a recent ERM teaching experience and 2) begin a dialogue among LIS educators who currently teach or plan to teach an integrated ERM course. The presenter will convey her experience developing and teaching an ERM course at St. Catherine University during the fall semester of 2009. She will consider issues such as the appropriate balance between theory and practice, the breadth and depth of topics that should be covered, techniques for providing hands-on experience, and ways to reduce redundancy with coverage in other courses in the curriculum. The session will conclude with ample time for participants to ask questions and share their ideas and experiences.
