The electronic resource collection includes over 20,000 electronic journals, 150 databases, and represents about 1,500 content providers. The Library serves the research and information needs of a patron community of students, faculty, and staff of approximately 25,000 individuals (18,242 students FTE; 21,292 total community FTE).
The integrated library system (ILS),Endeavor Voyager, and OpenURL link resolver, ExLibris SFX, in use at the Library are hosted and managed through the Consortium of Academic and Research Libraries in Illinois (CARLI).
An existing and proven Electronic Resource Management system (ERM) is desired to be the central and shareable repository for data about electronic resources. The ERM will store information to enable tracking of electronic resources at various levels, compilation of usage statistics, and troubleshooting of library resources, and otherwise facilitate the effective management of Milner Library's electronic resources.
