NASIG 29th Annual Conference
Taking Stock and Taming New Frontiers
May 1-4, 2014
Ft. Worth, Texas

Established in 1985, the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. NASIG welcomes anyone interested in the serials information chain. Inspired by the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), NASIG held its first conference at Bryn Mawr College in June 1986. The annual conference, usually held in late May or June, offers a premier opportunity to meet others representing the diverse interests of the serials community and to hear speakers who are on the cutting edge of scholarly communication.

To Boldly Go Where Few Have Gone Before: Global eResource Management in the Cloud

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Staff in libraries around the world locally track serials and e-resources in an effort to provide users with access to information. What is subscribed to; which titles are available through which publishers/aggregators; and dates local users have access to. Libraries invest considerable resources maintaining bibliographic, license and coverage information. Have you ever wondered if it is feasible to share bibliographic records and license records with other libraries? What if publishers and vendors updated title lists and coverage details?

In 2012, the University of Nebraska Omaha decided to implement a cloud-based discovery platform that manages collection materials in a global environmentWorldShare Management System (WMS) & WorldCat Local (WCL). There is no longer a catalog, only local access to global records. Attend this session to learn how UNO transitioned from a traditional ERMs to global e-resource management. Find out what it means to have real-time metadata updates, coverage data and title lists updated by publishers/vendors and how to reap the benefits of global license record templates. This session will also discuss the lessons learned and best practices for preparing library staff for this radical shift in e-resource management as we boldly go where few have gone before.
