Opening a Can of wERMS: Texas A&M University's Experiences in Implementing Two Electronic Resource Management Systems
Hartnett, Eric; Price, Apryl; Smith, Jane; Barrett, Michael
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v22 n1-2 p18-27 2010
Over the past few years, Texas A&M University (TAMU) has searched for a way to administer its electronic subscriptions as well as the electronic subscriptions shared among the TAMU System. In this article, we address our attempts to implement an effective electronic resource management system (ERMS), both for subscriptions on the main campus and for those resources shared by its affiliate institutions throughout the TAMU System. Specifically, we describe two implementation efforts that have shaped TAMU's experience with ERM systems: our unsuccessful attempt to implement Verde and our more successful implementation of Gold Rush.
