Be sure to register by September 24 to get the early bird discount for
NISO's in-person forum on E-Resource Management: From Start to Finish (and
Back Again), to be held on October 7, 2010, in Chicago, IL. The "start to
finish and back again" of this event will take attendees through the various
stages of working with an active ERM in your library. Following a keynote
presentation by Norm Medeiros (Haverford College) on the value that ERM
systems bring to libraries, the speakers will cover:

.	The Start - The basics of a successful ERM implementation/use from
integrating ERM with print holdings to using the ERM for managing content,
budgeting, and reporting. Speakers are Martha Rice-Sanders (HELIN
Consortium) and Nisa Bakkalbasi (James Madison University).

.	The Finish - At a higher-level, the more advanced and downstream
uses made capable by ERMs including using the ERM to interpret data and to
inform staffing decisions or collection management. Speakers are Nancy Beals
(Wayne State University Libraries), John Rutherford (Wayne State University
Libraries) and Angela Riggio (UCLA Library).

.	Back Again - Those things that still aren't in place, that we will
need to implement anew in order to answer outstanding needs, such as e-books
in ERMs and the next steps that are being determined by the NISO ERM Gap
Analysis Working Group. Speakers are Aaron Wood (Alexander Street Press) and
Tim Jewell (University of Washington).

This event will benefit anyone who is interested in using an ERM for
managing content and for interpreting data and making decisions based on
that data. NISO educational forums are routinely praised for their excellent
selection of speakers representing a diversity of viewpoints across the
scholarly information community and the small size which provides
opportunities to network with speakers and other attendees.

A complete agenda, registration, and hotel information are available on the
event webpage (http://www.niso.org/news/events/2010/erm/). Get the early
bird discount by registering before September 24. NISO members, Committee on
Institutional Cooperation members, and students receive a discounted rate.
