Libraries have been evolving their methods and approaches to managing the increasing range and number of electronic collections; however, much of the technology that has been developed to support this evolution involves the use of closed, disparate systems that each supports a single aspect of electronic resource management. At this session, OCLC staff and experts from member libraries will look at specific challenges of the e-resource management life cycle and share their perspectives about the opportunities to simplify and streamline processes at each step of the workflowselect, acquire, describe, discover, access and renew.

Particular focus will be given to the potential for libraries (and providers) to share data, tools and processes within OCLC's suite of WorldShare applications. These include: working with publishers to provide comprehensive, timely, good quality, reusable metadata to drive the discovery and usage of electronic resources; providing APIs that foster the development of functional enhancements that benefit everyone; working with a range of partners to embed metadata about, and drive discovery of, library collections in the sites and tools where users start their search.

OCLC is a worldwide cooperative of more than 16,000 libraries, archives and museums, working with members to provide a range of cloud-based, cooperative services that manage the complete library management life cycleOCLC WorldShare. OCLC's unique community-led approach to cataloging has resulted in widespread acknowledgment of the richness and accuracy of libraries' metadata. We are now applying this approach to the description, management and discovery of electronic resources.

By offering applications that address acquisitions, link resolution, authentication, license management, discovery, metadata synchronization and analyticson an open, shared platformOCLC is working with libraries to share the work of managing and delivering licensed resources with services that streamline and automate critical functions at every step of the library's workflow.
