All stakeholders have an interest in ensuring that properly licensed
content is made accessible and usable to the authorized communities.
Content providers want to minimize cancellation due to under-utilization
while maximizing efficiencies in their business. Libraries want to ensure
that users aren’t blocked from content to which they should have rights.

*More About Our Speakers:*

*Improving Clarity Around Continuing Access*
*Adam Rusbridge*, *Project Manager, EDINA, University of Edinburgh*

Librarians encounter a variety of issues when managing access to
e-journals, and these issues become more complex as we consider the medium-
to long-term. Journals transfer between publishers, subscriptions change
over time and entitlement information is lost, and journal content can
disappear if publishers fail. We will outline the range of problems
encountered by libraries and consider steps that can be taken to improve
assurance of access.

*Adam Rusbridge is a project manager at EDINA, University of Edinburgh, who
specializes in issues around long-term preservation and continuing access
to electronic content. He has been involved in a range of projects and
services, including the Keepers Registry, UK LOCKSS Alliance and Jisc
SafeNet project.*

*Athena Hoeppner*, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Central
Florida (Title and Abstract to Come)

*Athena Hoeppner is the Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of
Central Florida. She has 20 years of department-spanning experience in
academic libraries. She has worked in Reference and Instruction, Library
Systems, and now resides in Acquisitions, where she coordinates eResources
acquisitions and maintains systems that enhance discovery and access.*

*Athena’s work and research center on applying technology to connect users
to content. Her projects explore interfaces and usability, user experience
(UX), and innovations in discovery and access technologies.*

*Challenge Accepted! Tips to ensuring that patrons have access to paid
*Jennifer Leffler*, *Technical Services Manager, University of Northern

Safeguarding patrons’ access to paid content is a hallmark of the work of
electronic resources librarians. While this is a known role, the challenges
are vast and varied. Access problems arise at many stages of the lifecycle
of electronic resources, from purchase and renewal to vendor changes and
cancellation. This talk will look at specific examples of access issues
from a mid-sized, state institution and provide ideas on how to compact
these difficulties.

*Jen is a Technical Services Manager at the University of Northern
Colorado. She has held several titles in her more than 10 years at that
institution, but is thrilled that she has always been able to keep
electronic resources and serials as a part of her work.*
