From the mid 70s to the early 9os things were relatively straight forward There were other libraries which we did – via central databases like OCLC a lot of business Then the internet came along and connected the libraries and Z39.50 made it easier The Web added extra sparkle to the mix and the proliferation of e-resources brought forward Web portals Link resolvers for the appropriate copy function This put acquisitions and Serials modules into a spin So they were propped up with paper and spreadsheets Then along came the ERM
Electronic Resource Management and Access Services: A New Generation NMLA/MPLA 2007 March 15, 2007 Presented by Dodie Ownes [email_address]
In this session, various independent electronic resource management systems (ERMS) for library use will be discussed. Focus will be on examining the efficiency of the ERMS in integrating and streamlining the multi-step processes librarians encounter when navigating searches between print and electronic documents, as well the ERMS as the knowledgebase for the library. Statistical packages, benchmark reporting and license management options will also be reviewed. A new category of library services, ERAMS, will also be discussed.
To Buy or To Build? It is a question of where to put your resources
The 39 FTE positions on the left represent those working on print acquisitions. The 7.5 FTE positions on the right represent those working on e-resource deployment. To put this in context, the print/electronic split in their budget is 60% print/40% electronic.

“ A store of knowledge about a domain represented in machine-processable form, which may be rules (in which case the knowledge base may be considered a rule base), facts, or other representations.” ( www.ichnet.org/glossary.htm ).
Link-resolver vendors, AtoZ list vendors and ERMS vendors often maintain a knowledge base of information about serial versions, including such information as links to content, coverage information, and administrative and descriptive metadata. Each local implementation of a system may use those portions of the global knowledge base that represent the holdings of the implementing organization.
