This session of the ERM Interest Group focuses on the role that library initiated ERMS continue to play in the ERM marketplace. Major developments are taking place with the focus on ILS and ERM integration in systems such as ExLibris’ ALMA, Innovative’s Sierra and the Kuali OLE project but many libraries still choose to develop their own ERMS or turn to solutions created and offered by other libraries such as CUFTS, CORAL, ERMes and Gold Rush. This session includes presentations from representatives of these library initiated ERMS and will highlight the value and impact that these systems continue to have on the ERMS marketplace both now and in the future.

Libraries Thriving Learning Community—Fall 2011

Organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS

 

Could you use a sounding board for a project at your institution that you have always wanted to accomplish?

 

Would you like to join a community where colleagues challenge and support one another's learning and growth toward shared e-resources goals?

 

Do you want to engage in conversations and actions—to become critical colleagues—to transform what it means to have a thriving library?

 

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you are ready to become a member of a professional learning community organized by Credo Reference and LYRASIS.

 

The Libraries Thriving Learning Community invites us to think about and engage on key current issues with the aim of developing approaches, solutions and responses that demonstrate the effectiveness of individual library professionals as well as libraries’ effectiveness within the institutions of which they are a part. From October through December 2011 community participants will engage in a variety of interactions, primarily online, with occasional in-person meetings, to explore and experiment with the kinds of individual and institutional actions needed for libraries to thrive. Sharing a vision for collaborative, creative, and positively-focused libraries and library professionals, Credo Reference and LYRASIS are providing facilitation and technical support for this unique community.

Members of the Educational Community,

 

Have you written about e-resources but don’t know where to share your finished product with other information professionals? Have you recently presented on e-resource innovation? Libraries Thriving would like to give you an opportunity to share your hard work!

Libraries Thriving is an online community dedicated to communicating the value of libraries and their ability to impact the learning moment.  Comprised of librarians, faculty, publishers, library vendors, researchers and other educators, this collaborative community is for sharing ideas and working together towards the common goal of increasing innovative use of e-resources. One component of the site is a Research and Resources Reading Room, which provides access to e-resource innovation research. We’d like to add your research to the list! If you’re interested, please e-mail Laura Warren (laura.warren@credoreference.com) to get the sharing process started. 

Don’t have research you’d like to share? There are other opportunities for participation in the community as well, including posting in the discussion forums, attending free educational seminars or participating in the fall learning community.  I invite you to sign up for the newsletter (http://www.librariesthriving.org/libraries-thriving-learning-community-2011-signup) to stay up to date on what’s happening in the community.  You can also like Libraries Thriving on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/libsthriving), connect with Libraries Thriving on LinkedIn (http://www.linkedin.com/groups/Libraries-Thriving-Collaborative-Space-EResource-3975729?home=&gid=3975729&trk=anet_ug_hm) and follow Libraries Thriving on Twitter (http://twitter.com/#!/libsthriving).

 

Let the collaboration and e-resource innovation begin!
