E-resources are well-entrenched in academic library collections, but many libraries still face challenges related to staffing and managing these resources at scale. Despite the common belief that e-resources require less work than print resources, staff involved with managing these resources quickly discover that these resources do not manage themselves. Considering their heavy usage, significant cost, and importance to library patrons, it is essential that libraries acquire and manage e-resources as efficiently and effectively as possible. Presented by two experienced e-resources librarians with input from a vendor representative, this session will provide an introduction to e-resource acquisitions, its related concepts and workflows, and an overview of supporting tools. Presenters will cover best practices for each stage of the e-resources lifecycle from an acquisitions perspective. The majority of the session will focus on acquiring and providing access to online materials, as well as how to handle changes to e-resources, such as cancellations and title transfers. Throughout the session, participants will also learn about high and low-tech solutions to common problems faced by staff who are responsible for acquiring e-resources for their library’s collection.
