Promoting Transparency and Collaboration Between Colleagues Through ER Activation
Deployed over the summer, our new workflow utilizes tools available to increase transparency about the electronic resources acquisitions process. Technical Services worked with subject librarians to create a workflow that both got Acquisitions all the information needed to license or trial new resources while providing a space for Subject Librarians to work on resource descriptions and use a new tagging system to identify resources with full or partial access. In this session, I’ll go over our development process and discuss the first few months of use, noting both positive and negative outcomes.
