Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group

Sunday, June 30, 2013
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm, US/Central

What does it take to manage electronic resources? Join the Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group at ALA to find out. The interest group will lead a discussion about the fundamentals of electronic resources management based on the Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians developed by the NASIG (North American Serials Interest Group) Core Competencies Task Force in 2012. NASIG identified seven competencies which e-resources librarians should possess to effectively manage electronic resources. These competencies are knowledge of the e-resources life cycle, technology, research skills, effective communication, supervision & management skills, awareness of trends & professional development, and person qualities (i.e. flexibility). A short presentation on the NASIG Core Competencies by Jeannie Castro & Kelsey Brett, University of Houston, will be followed by a discussion. Please bring your questions and experiences about managing e-resources to share.
