TERMS: Techniques for Electronic Resource Management has been a developing crowdsourced project to provide the best practices for electronic resource management. This workshop will focus on the creation of workflows from the six functional areas of electronic resource lifecycle for varying types of resources: ebooks, ejournals/back-files/databases, and archive collections.

Proposal Details

The plan for the 4 hours is as follows: Groups will be formed to work through exercises that could be used as the basis for creation of workflows at an individuals' home institution. Each section of the E-Resource lifecycle will be introduced along with the activity to be performed for each section. The groups will be asked to pick a resource type to develop workflows around: ebooks, ejournals/back-files/databases, or archives.

Section 1: Investigation & Acquisition of a Resource

Section 2: Implementation of a Resource

Section 3: Evaluation, Review, & Cancellation of a Resource

The groups will need whiteboards and post-it notes to help develop the workflows for each section. Time for each group to report out will be givne to help inform all the attendees of considerations within each group.

Statement of Uniqueness/ Originality

This workshop builds on the ALA-Pre-Conference given in Summer 2013. This session will be more hands-on and activity focused with groups reporting back to the whole workshop on ideas developed in smaller teams. This will enable attendees to take best practice from the TERMS project and lessons learned in a practical and applicable way by the end of the workshop.
