Electronic Resources Work Group April 22, 2004 Present: Tina Chrzastowski, Lisa German, Jo Kibbee, Michael Norman, Karen Schmidt, John Weible, Lynn Wiley Electronic Resource documentation: following on our discussion in March, John Weible brought documents from the previous electronic resources group (EIRC) that lay out evaluation and related standards for considering e-resources. These continue to be valuable and should be linked. Tina will review and bring back suggested updates for our May meeting. Coverage and overlap: we continued to discuss issues related to duplication of resources. The new ORR shows very clearly the overlap in coverage and will be an important tool to aid us in making cancellation and retention decisions for specific packages. We also discussed briefly the overlap among print and electronic A&I resources. Review of er14 is occurring in the CDC now. E-resources and web use statistics: we discussed the importance of knowing activity levels on our server, and the implications these statistics have for overall staffing and budget decisions. John Weible showed us the excellent web statistics that his office compiled and analyzed over a 6 month period in 2003. Lisa German will take these to the FY05 Implementation Task Force. Product licensing and offers information on G:/ drive: Following our March discussion, Wendy developed a series of sub-folders in the G:/Collections Info folder to make information on incoming offers and licensing information more available to everyone. ERWG reviewed the organization of the folders and made suggestions on changes to improve access. TDNet Contract: Our TDNet contract will be renewed and billed for October 2004October 2005. Next meeting: May 27, 11:30-1:00.
