Thank you to everyone who has responded so far to my ERIL question. This
has brought up a few suggestions and more questions. I am adding a digest
of responses at the bottom of this email.

I am looking for an ALL-IN-ONE workshop or course because 1.  I am trying
to figure out how to set up a new ERM (from FOLIO) and 2. I am getting more
questions about all kinds of different electronic resources and how they
can/cannot be used, maintained, etc. My outdated training on licensing does
not cover the ever-changing licensing/contract information today. And, I
knew more about traditional text based resources, like ejournals and
databases, (although I am still trying to figure out ebooks). In any case,
it looks like I will have to continue to learn in pieces.

Thanks again,

Here's the summary so far:


Licensing website: E-resource negotiation and licensing resources

ONEAL: Open Negotiation Education for Academic Libraries

Videolib (email list on streaming video)


CORE: Electronic Resources Acquisitions Course: (only some licensing; may
not be advanced):

Copyrightlaws.com: Certificate in Licensing Digital Content: (may not be

Minitex: Spell it out: E-Resource Licensing Lunch ‘n Learn Series (not a
course and only ½ hour discussion covering a variety of topics)

serials; watch conference program)
