    Please join the Electronic Resources Interest Group for a discussion of advances in electronic resources management on Saturday, January 21st from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in Room A315 of the Georgia World Congress Center.


    As libraries continue to transition away from information services based on physical materials, how is electronic resources management changing? How have libraries reorganized to manage electronic resources? Are legacy print collections being replaced systematically with online journals and eBooks? What are some of the problems encountered in this transition? How have information services been improved to serve users? Attendees will participate in small group discussions and then share their answers with the Group.     


    Best regards,



    George Stachokas

    Chair, Electronic Resources Interest Group
