Abstract
Only 19% of accredited LIS programs appear to have a course on ERM. Thus, for continued evolution of online resource management, we need to determine how to share our expertise. This presentation explores using TERMS and NASIG’s Core Competencies for staff development as well as teaching a library science course.
As the demand for convenient, accessible, and relevant information access rises while funding remains flat, it is critical that libraries have the skilled workforce necessary for the extreme stewardship required to manage online resources.
In this session, the presenter describes using the Techniques of Electronic Resource Management (TERMS) as a framework for developing an ERM Team and as a blueprint for teaching an online e-resource management course for University of Wisconsin – Madison SLIS.
Then the presenter will invite participants to discuss the future of e-resource management knowledge transfer and skill distribution by establishing partnerships with SLIS programs, establishing paid e-resource management fellowships, or...?

  9. 9. “After reading the NASIG ERM Librarian Core Competencies, I am feeling very overwhelmed by what it takes to be an ERM librarian. I want to be an academic librarian focusing on reference and instruction, and thought it would be good to have some knowledge of ERM in order to get a job once I'm out of school, but reading over the competencies, it seems as if one would have to spend her entire time in library school taking the exact classes (cataloging, collection development, metadata, XTML, etc.) needed for this area of library studies. I only have one class left, and will not be able to take more classes focusing on ERM.” - UW Madison SLIS Student
  10. 10. Of the 57 ALA accredited Library & Information Science programs, only 19% appear to have a course that teaches the practice and philosophy of managing e- resources.
  11. 11. 73% of recent job ads for ERM positions require experience and knowledge.

  16. 16. “Clearly, then, while libraries have been adding staff in response to needs for e-resource support, they have not been adding staff in a way that comes close to being in proportion to collection growth. While one would not expect or even need staff and collections to have grown in exact proportion to each other, the fact that staff and collection growth are an order of magnitude apart does strongly suggest that more staff needs to be deployed in e-collection support.” - Duranceau
  17. 17. “One librarian offered the following: ‘I do not think my answers reflect how understaffed we are for dealing with digital resources. Because we have added only one staff position to assist with the proliferation of electronic materials, we are asking existing librarians and staff to continually do additional work while the existing work has not decreased.’” - Duranceau
  18. 18. “With so much written about ER management and so much money going into product development to support it, one might think that a similar amount of energy would be expended on the consideration of the appropriate staffing which is necessary to manage these resources. But, as mentioned previously, based on the relative dearth of articles found in Library Literature which discuss this topic, staffing has not been a high priority.” - Albitz & Shelburne
  19. 19. And that problem? It’s in middle school.

  24. 24. “But, no one person can know, understand, or keep track of all the intricacies of ER librarianship as they evolve, which makes the development of consistent, systematic, broadly available training opportunities critical.” - Albitz & Shelburne
