    Posted Apr 24, 2017 08:53 AM

    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)
