NISO Forum in October – E-Resource Management: From Start to Finish (and Back Again)

NISO will be holding an in-person forum on “E-Resource Management: From Start to Finish (and Back Again)” on October 7, 2010, in Chicago, IL. The “start to finish and back again” of this event will take attendees through the various stages of working with an active ERM in your library:

  • The Start: The basics of a successful ERM implementation/use
  • The Finish: At a higher-level, the more advanced and downstream uses made capable by ERMs (e.g., decision making)
  • Back Again: Those things that still aren’t in place, that we will need to implement anew in order to answer outstanding needs.

This event will benefit anyone who is interested in using an ERM for managing content and for interpreting data and making decisions based on that data. You will also learn about what to expect in the near future for ERMs.

NISO educational forums are routinely praised for their excellent selection of speakers representing a diversity of viewpoints across the scholarly information community and the small size which provides opportunities to network with speakers and other attendees.
