Building on the NASIG Core Competencies to support electronic resources management best practices as well as electronic resources lifecycle and management, this panel will explore in-depth, innovative approaches to electronic resources management at institutions that utilize the open source CORAL ERMS. Panelists will present different aspects of electronic resource management with attention to how CORAL supports those processes at their institutions. Collectively they tell the story of how an open source, community managed system can be used in flexible, extensible, and innovative ways. We hope this session will inspire and help others still struggling to find solutions for their electronic resources management. Aspects to be discussed will include:
-Workflow support (completing all steps of the e-resource lifecycle)
-Usage statistics management and reporting
-ERMS metadata as embedded, automated source for discovery services (website a-z list, etc.)
*The presentation slides of the three presenters are posted separately on SlideShare.
