Strategic Planning for Electronic Resources Management: A Case Study at Gustavus Adolphus College
Hulseberg, Anna; Monson, Sarah
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v21 n2 p163-171 2009
Electronic resources, the tools we use to manage them, and the needs and expectations of our users are constantly evolving; at the same time, the roles, responsibilities, and workflow of the library staff who manage e-resources are also in flux. Recognizing a need to be more intentional and proactive about how we manage e-resources, the e-resources librarian and serials manager at a liberal arts college library collaborated on a formal strategic planning process. This article presents a case study of strategic planning for e-resources management--from development to implementation. By using a collaborative, task-based approach, the strategic planning process helped us redefine roles and workflow and prompted us to think creatively about how we can improve e-resources management in our library.
