(Carlsbad, CA January 18, 2010. EOS International announced its newly released Electronic Resource Management (ERM) module, an enhancement to its EOS.Web product line. This latest offering provides information professionals with a solution that helps manage electronic resources.

EOS ERM helps library professionals manage all electronic resources and Web Subscriptions, such as: electronic journals, databases, and electronic books. It provides a single solution to control how electronic resources are found by patrons and how the information is presented through Web OPAC. Filtered list control View all ERM records or display records according to status Force or passively allow the display of license agreements as patrons use a resource Retrieve records by name, title, statement, or vendor Edit, delete, or view the bibliographic record from the List Screen Edit the Web Subscription, edit the order, report problems with a subscription, email stakeholders, or renew a resource Enable or disable authorization to add, delete, and edit ERM records on a by-user basis Stores all record-specific information for resources in the ERM record itself, including: license agreement, terms of use, and security concerns associated with a resource

Professional collaboration between the knowledge manager and stakeholders is an additional feature of EOS ERM that helps to streamline the approval phase of e-resources. ERM allows specific phases to be completed before a new phase can begin, and staff members are able to solicit responses directly from other stakeholder groups. Stakeholders can manage and submit responses through EOS.Web OPAC, and the library staff receives stakeholder responses by email.

Jeff Goodwin, Vice President of Product Development at EOS International, comments, "The functionality and benefits of the new EOS ERM module is truly impressive. Now library staff have the ability to manage and expand their digital collections confidently, knowing that they have a solution that will streamline the entire electronic resource management process. From a review cycle for the resource record, to purchasing, publishing, and renewing a resource, ERM does it all."
