E-Resource Management Forum

Be sure to register by September 24 to get the early bird 
discount for NISO's in-person forum on E-Resource Management: 
>From Start to Finish (and Back Again), to be held 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. Following a keynote 
presentation by Norm Medeiros (Haverford College) on the value 
that ERM systems bring to libraries, the speakers will cover:

*The Start - The basics of a successful ERM implementation/use 
from integrating ERM with print holdings to using the ERM for 
managing content, budgeting, and reporting. Speakers are Martha 
Rice-Sanders (HELIN Consortium) and Nisa Bakkalbasi (James 
Madison University).

*The Finish - At a higher-level, the more advanced and downstream 
uses made capable by ERMs including using the ERM to interpret 
data and to inform staffing decisions or collection management. 
Speakers are Nancy Beals (Wayne State University Libraries), John 
Rutherford (Wayne State University Libraries) and Angela Riggio 
(UCLA Library).

*Back Again - Those things that still aren't in place, that we 
will need to implement anew in order to answer outstanding needs, 
such as e-books in ERMs and the next steps that are being 
determined by the NISO ERM Gap Analysis Working Group. Speakers 
are Aaron Wood (Alexander Street Press) and Tim Jewell 
(University of Washington).

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. 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.
