E-SYSTEMS: A COLUMN ON E-RESOURCES MANAGEMENT AND ACCESS

As libraries have purchased more and more e-content, the challenges of
managing and providing access to it all have rapidly grown by leaps.
And as libraries, agents, publishers, and system providers develop new
systems and standards to support the management and delivery of
e-content, we all (including our users) have become increasingly reliant
on the new interdependent infrastructures we are building to contain,
manage, deliver, and preserve the e-content our culture produces.
Serials Librarian is launching this new column to focus on hot-topic as
well as slow-burn developments and issues in e-resource management and
access infrastructures. From home-grown systems to commercially
produced products; from the traditional ILS systems to link resolvers,
federated search platforms, and the newly emerging ERMs; from ERMI to
ERMI2; from LOCKSS, CLOCKSS, Portico and SUSHI to whatever next appears
from over the horizon. We invite you both as a reader and as a
potential contributor to this column, and we hope you find it useful in
tracking the newest developments in this field.
