Exploring trends, technologies, e-resource management, and digital services in libraries.

ER&L 101 Programming at ERL20

ER&L is pleased to share a curated set of 2020 sessions to address the needs of those of us new to eresources responsibilities, new to the field or in need of foundational level reorientation to key areas in eresources management.

Fundamental concepts for every new e-resource librarian:

  • Pre-Conference Workshop* W01: Is this thing on? Learning the basics of establishing E-resource access
  • Pre-Conference Workshop* W02: Excel for eResource Librarians
  • S01: Electronic Resource Librarianship: Past, Present and Future – get an overview of where e-resource librarianship started, what we’re doing today, and what the future holds (also honors ER&L’s 15th anniversary!).
