Online Professional Development from ER&L

ER&L Community–

Presentations at ER&L represent important incremental and novel advancements in how we collect, maintain and make accessible eresources. We are humbled and grateful to be a space, both virtual and physical, where you choose to present and gather. Presentations at ER&L 2020 came from libraries large and small, public and private, in North America and from around the world.

At the 15th conference of Electronic Resources and Libraries, we asked our community to be flexible with our event; many presenters, attendees and vendors chose to join remotely. We have been so impressed by so many of you in the library field that have been called upon to be flexible in many ways during these challenging and unprecedented times. We want to support that effort in any way we can.

Effective immediately, ER&L is enabling free access to the online conference videos from ER&L 2020 to be available to the library community.

If you attended ER&L 2020, your online credentials may be shared with colleagues within your library now. Your access has been set without a cap for concurrent viewers from your library. These credentials were sent to you on Sunday March 8 and Wednesday March 11 daily emails to all attendees, and you’ll find these credentials near the bottom of those messages.

If you did not attend ER&L 2020, you may sign up now for access here at no cost to you. Complete the registration type with a $0 cost. ER&L will enable credentials weekly for the next 3 weeks on the following schedule:

  • Complete registration by Friday, March 20 at 12 PM Noon Central; Credentials will be sent by Monday, March 23 by 12 PM Noon Central
  • Complete registration by Friday, March 27 at 12 PM Noon Central; Credentials will be sent by Monday, March 30 by 12 PM Noon Central
  • Complete registration by Friday, April 3 at 12 PM Noon Central; Credentials will be sent by Monday, April 6 by 12 PM Noon Central

After you have your access credentials, please review the email and associated “logistics” page first for a testing page, instructions and FAQs.

If you would like to download the slides submitted by presenters, visit our Dropbox folder.

Our ER&L team is working from home and able to assist you with access if you have any questions about the platform. Please be patient with what may be a slightly longer than typical response time.

Be well,
