Coming to TERMS at Annual

You've read about it in the May issue of American Libraries (p. 22), now learn more about TERMS directly from the authors Jill Emery and Graham Stone.

On Friday, June 28, at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference, the Association for Library Collections and Technical Services (ALCTS) brings you “Techniques for Electronic Resource Management (TERMS): Crowdsourcing for Best Practices.”  This all day preconference, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., introduces attendees to best practices in TERMS.   Register through the 2013 ALA Annual Conference website. The cost for each:  $219 for ALCTS members; $269 for ALA members; $99 for retired members and students; $319 for non-members.  Select event ALC4.

TERMS: Techniques for Electronic Resource Management has been a crowdsourcing experiment to encourage worldwide librarians to share their best practices and workflows of electronic resource management freely. We invited interested librarians via social media venues such as Facebook, twitter, Tumblr and a wiki. Come learn how this experiment worked and participate in the development of capturing the best practices of electronic resource management. The TERMS Library Technology Report will be made available to attendees.
