Here’s an interesting development. Wouldn’t it be great if we weren’t devoting so much time and energy to multiple licenses? Wouldn’t it be neat to have a common understanding of what’s acceptable (including things like interlibrary loan and e-reserves) when acquiring e-content for our libraries? Aren’t scholarly publishers and libraries potential allies? Can’t we all just get along?

Maybe so. Check out the Shared E-Resource Understanding project. And feel free to comment on the document in development. This is exciting!

I'm an academic librarian at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota. Like all librarians at our small, liberal arts institution I am involved in reference, collection development, and shared management of the library. My area of specialization is instruction, with research interests also in media literacy, popular literacy, publishing, and assessment.
