Re: Challenges in Technical Services (Teena Apperson) Stefanie Wittenbach 19 Nov 2003 15:39 UTC

I would have to say the greatest challenge right now is the added
workload of electronic resources because we're adding so many (as part
of our consortium) and because there are so many new and different
aspects to managing them--from managing the subscriptions to keeping the
links working to maintaining the proxy server table, etc.
