Description

Are you looking for an innovative and cost effective solution to manage your electronic resources? Need help with organizing your acquisition records, product descriptions, licensing information, vendor contacts, and access details? At Valley City State University, ND, we have moved from a paper workflow trail to an electronic one with the help of an innovative open-source resource management system called CORAL. Our electronic resource management workflow involves a team of five: Library Director, User Services Librarian, Systems Specialist, Electronic Resources Librarian and a student assistant. You can custom-build your library electronic resource management workflows when acquiring, renewing and removing electronic resources. You can run any number of reports to create custom lists of your electronic resources. You can compile license agreements from multiple years. You can even compare license terms from multiple vendors to get best deal when negotiating new resource acquisition. No need to remember to send renewal notes to your staff because CORAL can do that for you. It's powerful yet understandable and easy to use for any library staffer who contributes to your electronic resource management workflow!
