2 Presentation Scope Historical context of ERM Historical context of ERM Commercial involvement Commercial involvement ERM in the context of broader trends in library automation ERM in the context of broader trends in library automation

3 How did we get here? The journal collections of libraries making dramatic shift from print to electronic format The journal collections of libraries making dramatic shift from print to electronic format Existing library automation software lacked the ability to accommodate libraries needs in managing these large collections of e-journal content Existing library automation software lacked the ability to accommodate libraries needs in managing these large collections of e-journal content

4 Historical context Format shift well underway by the late 1990s Format shift well underway by the late 1990s Informal systems employed in libraries to track e-journal collections Informal systems employed in libraries to track e-journal collections Automation crisis let to efforts to design systems to provide a more systematic approach Automation crisis let to efforts to design systems to provide a more systematic approach

6 Data driven A fundamental characteristic of the ERM involves its reliance on high- quality e-journal holdings data A fundamental characteristic of the ERM involves its reliance on high- quality e-journal holdings data Software and technology cannot compensate for weak e-journal data. Software and technology cannot compensate for weak e-journal data.

7 Profile-based management Individual check-in model used for print not sustainable with electronic subscription format Individual check-in model used for print not sustainable with electronic subscription format Manage e-journals based on a profile of subscriptions Manage e-journals based on a profile of subscriptions Struggle to integrate e-Journals with existing automation environment Struggle to integrate e-Journals with existing automation environment Interest to move from separate E-journal finding aids to a more integrated environment for the public Interest to move from separate E-journal finding aids to a more integrated environment for the public Interest in integrating management of e-journals into overall library workflows Interest in integrating management of e-journals into overall library workflows

8 E-Journal Data Problem: difficult to know what titles and issues of journal content might be available to library users. Problem: difficult to know what titles and issues of journal content might be available to library users. Much content acquired through aggregated products Much content acquired through aggregated products Coverage constantly in flux Coverage constantly in flux Based on ever-changing arrangements between aggregators and publishers Based on ever-changing arrangements between aggregators and publishers Not possible for libraries to manage manually Not possible for libraries to manage manually Profile-based strategy Profile-based strategy –Develop a profile of the librarys subscriptions –Determine actual holdings based on that profile in combination with up-to-date information from knowledgebase.

39 ILS for E-Content? Failure of the ILS to evolve to provide functionality for electronic content Failure of the ILS to evolve to provide functionality for electronic content The ILS vendors were too busy building the systems we were asking them to build The ILS vendors were too busy building the systems we were asking them to build No business model to support major re- development of the ILS No business model to support major re- development of the ILS Proliferation of separate modules for functionality that could have been integrated.
