Re: ERM for journal management Bluhm-Stieber, Hella 08 Jul 2009 17:15 UTC

We just started subscribing to Serials Solutions 360 Core, which is
their A-Z list. They added our databases and free online collections for
us. Now I am working on adding our different online journals and our
print holdings to it, as well. Once it is all set up I hope it will make
it a 1-stop access for all of our journal subscriptions.

Presently I am collecting separate statistics from LinkOut, EbscoHost,
and HighWire Press, but do not have the time to collect them from our
individual online titles.

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.
