Call for Proposals: ALA Annual ALCTS CMS Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group

The ALCTS CMS Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group (CMERIG) is seeking presentation proposals for our meeting to be held on Sunday, June 25, 2017 from 3:00-4:00 pm during the ALA Annual 2017 conference in Chicago.

We are looking for presentations that discuss ways in which libraries are preserving acquired e-resource content. This issue impacts a wide breadth of library services, including collection management, access, data services, and preservation. Example topics include:

  • Tracking post-cancellation access rights
  • Decision making related to post-cancellation access rights
  • Preserving electronic content
  • Purchasing and managing files (e.g. PDF, datasets, sound recordings)
  • PORTICO, LOCKKS, or CLOCKKS use by libraries
  • Locally created or hosted solutions for long-term preservation and/or access to e-content
  • Providing access to preserved e-content
  • Licensing workflows/best practices for ensuring long term access rights

The meeting is scheduled to last one hour with time for several presentations and a bit of administrative business. We request that the following information be included in each proposal:

  1. Name, job title, contact information and affiliation of presenter(s)
  2. Title of presentation
  3. Abstract (100 words)
  4. Estimated length of presentation

Please send your proposal to Sunshine Carter at scarter@umn.edu by Monday, May 15, 2017. Presenters will be notified of selected presentations by Friday, May 19, 2017.

Sincerely,
Sunshine Carter (Chair)
Michael Fernandez (Vice-Chair/Chair-Elect)
