E-resource management systems (ERM) are used to manage and monitor the life cycle of e-resources, particularly e-packages. Doing so requires keeping track of large amounts of information that involves ordering, invoicing, enabling access in OpenURL & ILS software, licensing, renewals, changes in platforms & vendors, and troubleshooting problems. These tasks need to be done effectively and in timely fashion to help ensure happy, satisfied patrons. Smith College Libraries has developed an e-resources management system using Google Sites. Google Sites provides an easily customizable platform to organize, utilize and archive this information and make it readily accessible. This presentation will highlight key features of Google Sites that Smith College Libraries have employed and how this has provided opportunities for improving workflow.
