“The poster presents best practices and lessons learned by Equinox Open Library Initiative staff during the implementation of the open source electronic resource management system, CORAL,” said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox. “In this poster, we also describe how to start the evaluation process for open source electronic resources management software and the lessons learned from the implementations we’ve done. Electronic resources management is time-intensive, and CORAL streamlines this activity for libraries. We’re excited to share the benefits of CORAL at ALA.”
