ALA> Open Source ERMs: CORAL and ERMes

Please join us in New Orleans for this program co-sponsored by 
RUSA CODES and ALCTS of interest to all librarians involved with 
the management of electronic resources.

*Open Source Electronic Resource Management Systems:
         CORAL and ERMes*

To tame the complex and ever-changing electronic resource 
management landscape, electronic resource management systems 
(ERMS) need to be flexible, evolving, and affordable. Two such 
systems are ERMes and CORAL, developed by libraries for libraries 
and made freely available.  ERMes, developed at the University of 
Wisconsin-LaCrosse, runs in Microsoft Access and is suitable for 
small and medium libraries.  CORAL, developed at the University 
of Notre Dame, is a modular, web-based system. Presenters will 
discuss the development and future plans of each system while 
also demonstrating how they use these ERMS. Join us to learn more 
about these free ERMS and answer such question as: Why open 
source ERMS?  Which of these free e-resource management systems 
might help me simplify e-resource management at my library? How 
can an ERMS help me save time and money?

Our speakers are: Galadriel Chilton and William Doering of the 
University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, and Benjamin Heet and Robin 
Malott of the University of Notre Dame.

When: Sunday, 26 June 2011, 10:30am - 12:00pm

Where: Morial Convention Center, Room 391 (MCC391), American 
Library Association Annual Conference, New Orleans, Louisiana
