How do you manage your electronic resources? It's a question libraries have been struggling with for more than a decade, and if you ask a dozen e-resources librarians this question, you'll likely get a dozen different answers. The presenters recently participated in a statewide ERM Working Group, tasked with developing an electronic resource management system as part of the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative's implementation of the Sierra ILS and Encore Duet discovery platform for the 40 Florida state colleges and universities. While the implementation project ultimately dissolved, the two years put into development were well served. As a group, we were able to design a tool around a diverse set of needs and priorities that could serve local and consortial acquisitions models. We were also able to identify a specific list of needs that lacked currently available solutions. This presentation provides an overview of the Working Group process, from brainstorming through (almost!) implementation, and presents how three university libraries are using the lessons learned from this experience to implement local solutions.

Serials and database access with some ILS/ERM, cataloging, and acquisitions mixed in. Outside work, I like to cook and bake bread.
