Exploring eResource Management in Public Libraries

Public libraries differ in funding, population, and services, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution for e-resources management. Panelists will review their libraries’ electronic collections, including selection and acquisitions, access and discovery, and public promotion. Texas State Library & Archives content is also addressed.

Janet Cox, Plano Public Library; Dianna Leigh Landes, Lakehills Area Library; Amy Mullin (moderator), Austin Public Library; Danielle Plumer, Texas State Library & Archives Commission; and Marian Valentine, Fort Worth Library.

Integrated eResources Lifecycle Management: Burnin' Down the Silos

The complex processes associated with eResource lifecycle management (from selection through weeding) can result in disjointed, siloed activities across the library. This session explores how to integrate eResource workflows by analyzing the individual tasks associated with the lifecycle, then identifying the procedures, tools, and personnel needed to complete them.

Kelsey Brett and Melody Condron, University of Houston.
