Findability Enabled: The Rise of the Knowledgebase Puts the ERMS on a New Stage
Ownes, Dodie
Library Journal, v131 n13 p30-32 Aug 2006
As public and academic librarians rely more heavily on electronic resources to satisfy patrons' information needs, seamless searching across print and electronic holdings gets more and more essential. Enter the integrated library system (ILS)-independent electronic resource management system (ERMS), which promises to integrate, search, and expose the entire library collection. This innovation will also greatly streamline the cumbersome process librarians go through when they consider buying a new journal, and it will simplify licensing queries. This article reports that the advent of ILS-independent ERMS and the recent partnership between Serials Solutions and Sirsi/Dynix to incorporate the Serials Solutions knowledgebase has the potential to radically revamp serials policies, procedures, and usability for all libraries.
