As the Electronic Resources Librarian, I manage the licensing, activation and maintenance of electronic resources and administer the Libraries' ERM System.  In addition, I assist with e-resources acquisitions and serve on the E-Resources Troubleshooting Team to resolve access issues.  As the Libraries' ERL, I work with the Libraries' collection selectors and technology services colleagues as well as publishers and vendors to establish and maintain access to the Libraries' and consortium provided e-resources.
