*Speaker Titles and Abstracts*

*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.*

*Imagining Better eResource Access: Tomorrow’s Technology Today*
*Athena Hoeppner*, *Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Central

Imagine a world of perfect eResources access. Where licenses, invoices,
usage data, knowledgebase, and vendor platforms agree on holdings and
rights. Where eResources information flows unhindered between systems.
Where user access is easy and ubiquitous.  Such a world does not yet exist
yet, but current standards, systems, and processes hint at what could be
accomplished. This presentation will explore recent innovations and imagine
changes to existing standards and processes to improve eResources
management and access.

*Athena Hoeppner is the Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of
Central Florida. In her current role, she oversees eResources and leads
implementation of and improvements to discovery and access technologies
which connect users to content. Her projects explore usability, UX,
discovery of, and access.*

*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.*
