We are using a hosted instance of the open-source CUFTS ERM. We are
still in the process of entering data for our databases and journal
collections. We have not done anything with individual journals as we
are investigating how many we might be able to roll into packages.

Subject: [SERIALST] ERM for journal management
I'm curious if other libraries currently use (or are considering) a
commercial, open-source, and/or home grown ERM to also manage print
and/or online journals. Like other libraries, we are caught in the
transition between print and online worlds which require completely
different workflows and systems to manage them. I currently "make do" by
using our ILS (Aleph) and ebsconet to manage subscriptions, invoicing,
and running reports for statistics, journal reviews, and various
projects. However, each has its limitations. I have created workarounds
within each system, but I'm hoping some day I won't have to. (Wishful
thinking?) How are other libraries managing print and online journals?
Multiple spreadsheets? ILS? Access? ERMS?
Thank you for your time.
