Electronic Resource Management
"I make sure that the high quality data in the library's catalog is rich enough to help students and faculty find the resources they need."
"I search out the most cost efficient and most widely accessible versions of the content needed by our patrons and researchers."
"I manage the subscription resources of the library, making sure we are getting the content that is needed and that the content is discoverable and available to the patrons."
The catalog and acquisitions records are the foundation of what we do in the library. No matter how beautiful, advanced, and sexy the "building" is, if the foundation is crumbling from neglect, eventually the "building" will collapse.
