If you’re a new e-resources librarian (or want to be one), this session is for you!

Rather than focusing on one or two aspects of the e-resources librarian’s many responsibilities, this session provides an overview of the position. Topics include: the e-resources lifecycle; collection development; working with vendors; negotiating contracts; budget management; liaison responsibilities; e-resources workflows; streaming media; eBooks; ILSs and LSPs; usage assessment; remote authentication; technical setup and support; deciphering job profiles; and interview tips. Examples from diverse academic institutions will be used to provide context and a “real life” framework (and hopefully some comic relief).

Attendees will walk away with an understanding of all aspects of the e-resources position, which they can use to identify areas for further investigation. This session will be valuable to new librarians considering e-resources librarianship as a career path, as well as experienced librarians looking for a new direction.
