    The ALCTS CMS Collection Management and Electronic Resources Interest Group (CMERIG) is seeking lightning talk proposals for our meeting to be held on Sunday, January 22, 2017 from 3:00-4:00 pm during the ALA Midwinter 2017 conference in Atlanta, Georgia.

     

    We are looking for presentation that discuss new e-resource workflows created and/or implemented by libraries. Workflows are an important part of getting work done in a consistent and timely fashion. There are a number of unique collection management challenges throughout the e-resource life cycle which necessitate the development of specialized workflows. Example workflow topics include:



    • Trialing & selecting new e-resources

    • Licensing & negotiation

    • Proxying

    • Perpetual access & archiving practices 

    • Title transfer management

    • Troubleshooting

    • Discovery

    • Record loading (EDI, EOD, MARC)

    • Managing platform changes

    • Ensuring accessibility of e-resources



    The meeting is scheduled to last one hour with time for several short (5-10 minute) presentations (including Q&A). The remaining time will be reserved for administrative business. We request that the following information be included in each proposal: 



    • Name, job title, contact information and affiliation of presenter(s)

    • Title of presentation

    • Abstract (50 words)



    Please send your proposal to Sunshine Carter at scarter@umn.edu by Monday, November 21, 2016. Presenters will be notified of selected presentations by November 28, 2016.

     

    Sincerely,

    Sunshine Carter (Chair)
