ERMes: Open Source Simplicity for Your E-Resource Management
Doering, William; Chilton, Galadriel
Computers in Libraries, v29 n8 p20-24 Sep 2009
ERMes, the latest version of electronic resource management system (ERM), is a relational database; content in different tables connects to, and works with, content in other tables. ERMes requires Access 2007 (Windows) or Access 2008 (Mac) to operate as the database utilizes functionality not available in previous versions of Microsoft Access. The previous version that uses Microsoft Access 2003 (Windows) is still available, but it does not include the new interface or improved functionality of the latest version. By far, the latest version's new interface and code provided by Norma J. Dowell are the biggest advancements. In addition to a completely new and more intuitive interface, highlights of the latest release include two means of entering use statistics (manually or importing COUNTER reports) and an initial attempt at functionality to help manage ejournals title by title. In this article, the authors provide a description of ERMes, its functionality and ERMes user feedback.
