Electronic Resource Management

ERM systems evolved to fill the gap left by conventional library management systems (LMS/ILS) in the management of electronic resources. They have, for the most part been replaced by library services platforms which integrate print and electronic resource management into a single system.

The TERMS (Techniques for Electronic Resource Management) project (it had an update in 2017) provides guidelines for specific eresource management functions/workflows:-

1. Investigating New Content for Purchase/Addition
2. Acquiring New Content
3. Implementation
4. Ongoing Evaluation and Access
5. Annual Review
6. Cancellation and Replacement Review
