ALCTS webinar: Electronic Resources Workflows and Tools


Date: October 23, 2013

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time. 


Description: This webinar will cover key points to consider, tools, and workflow options in managing electronic resources. Most libraries use multiple tools and approaches to manage e-resources, which brings benefits and challenges. Speakers will provide insights and perspectives on ERM systems, supplemental processes to fill gaps in functionality, and those systems' interoperability with patron-facing interfaces.
