I’m all set to go to the ER&L Conference in March. Last year I was an online participant, and I think I’ll get more out of the conference by attending in person.
It will be a challenge to decide which sessions to attend. Many interesting programs are scheduled at the same time, so I’ll catch up with some of it online. My plan so far:
Wednesday, March 19
- Analysis of Seven Metadata Creation Guidelines
- Transforming Technical Services or eProcurement of ERM and Library High-Tech Systems
- E-Resources Management or Collaborative Opportunities in E-Resource Management
- Transforming into Effective E-Resource Management
- Attitudes Towards Aggregated Databases or Discovery Services and ERM Systems Together
- Understanding Portico or Serials Solutions 360 (no abstract; see vendor site)
Thursday, March 20
- E-Resources in a Next Generation Catalog or Creating Organization Name Authority in an ERM
- Connecting With Students in Their Digital World: LibGuides
- Discovery Services From a Publisher Perspective
- Improving E-Resource Management by Optimizing your ILS
- Intelligence, Open Data, and the Future of ERM
- Improving Information Distribution Through Standards or User-Centered Tech Support of E-Resources or The Inexorable March to Online Only
- Alternatives for Populating ERMs
Friday, March 21
My job responsibilities do not currently involve usage statistics or e-books; while I’m not inclined to attend those sessions in person, I might vary my plan a bit to include some of those talks.
I hope to see some of you in Atlanta!
