According to a recent survey of Against the Grain readers, librarians seem pleased with the level of improvement that e-resource management (ERM) systems offer to daily e-resource workflow; however, there is still room for improvement. Librarians report needing help populating the ERM data and maintaining that data for accuracy. The majority of librarians surveyed want to be able to use one system, having the ERM integrate seamlessly with their ILS. Many librarians continue to supplement their ERMs with workaround such as spreadsheets and other Web-based tools. The goal, it seems, is to create an ERM that reduces the amount of time and systems for updating e-resource information.
