CORAL: Implementing an open source ERM

1,135 views

Published on

Presenter: Derrik Hiatt, Wake Forest University
This session will focus on the benefits and challenges of implementing CORAL (Centralized Online Resource Acquisitions and Licensing), an open source ERM developed at the University of Notre Dame. CORAL offers libraries the option to reorganize their electronic resource management workflow and to collect information about their electronic resources into one central place without having to commit funding for a new library software from the ever shrinking library budget. CORAL currently includes four modules: licensing, resources, organization, and usage statistics. In addition to the challenges that are faced in any ERM implementation such as data collection, data preparation, staff buy in, etc., this session will address issues specific to using an open source software in an academic library.
