Digital Library Federation Announces E-Resources Management Session in Orlando

There will be an open Friday evening E-resource Management discussion meeting at ALA Annual on Friday, June 25th, 7:30-9:30 p.m., at the Renaissance Orlando Resort, Crystal Ballroom A/B

The purpose is to share information and discuss initiatives in this area, including the Digital Library Federation (DLF) Electronic Resource Management (ERM) Initiative, as well as local and vendor development efforts.

The agenda includes an update on the DLF Electronic Resource Management Initiative project final report. The group is in the process of completing the proposed "Deliverables" and getting them ready for publication. As part of a quick summary of the project results, we will spend some time summarizing the XML investigation that was conducted over the last few months and reported on at the DLF Spring Forum .

The most current versions of the deliverables are posted to the " Web Hub for E-resource Metadata," and over the next few weeks the project's steering committee expects to post "final draft" versions of most of them there.

There will also be vendor announcements and updates (this section should include some
interesting announcements); local development news; and possible formation of ERM interest groups (through ALCTS and LITA) for ongoing discussions. Please come and participate in the discussion, if you can!
