OCLC Helps Libraries Solve the E-resource Management Puzzle, Sponsored Session from OCLC

With the incredible growth of the Internet, social media and mobile device usage, the amount of digital information has exploded in recent years while demands for instant access to e-resources continue to grow.  It’s not an easy problem for libraries to solve using fragmented e-resource management solutions and multiple spreadsheets.

OCLC offers tools and services – many included in OCLC Cataloging, Interlibrary Loan and WorldCat Discovery subscriptions – that help libraries solve the e-resource management puzzle, so you can put electronic materials in the hands of your users fast.

In this session, you will learn how to leverage existing OCLC subscriptions with quality metadata that is cooperatively managed in the WorldCat database and the WorldCat knowledge base to:

1)      Help users: 

  • Discover e-resources available in your library and around the world
  • Access electronic materials using reliable, accurate URLs 

2)      Help libraries: 

  • Select specific journals, e-books and electronic collections
  • Acquire e-resources from supplier(s)
  • Describe metadata and manage MARC records
  • Share electronic materials with other libraries
  • Report and measure usage
  • Renew subscriptions and manage license terms

Pick and choose which pieces you need to solve your e-resource management puzzle. Join us to learn more.
