dc.description.abstract James Madison Universities e-resources have increased exponentially each year since the Libraries began acquiring electronic journals in 1997. To accommodate this explosion, the JMU Libraries is constantly revising workflow, modifying procedures, and adopting new technologies. Currently the Serials Unit which handles the bulk of e-resource ordering, cataloging, and managing also oversees the library management systems, including the library catalog, ERM, the linkresolver, and the metasearch system. Members of the unit also include a full-time statistical analyst who compiles all of the Libraries statistics and maintains the Libraries' ERM database. The presentation follows the JMU Libraries adaptation to electronic resource acquisition and management since the first e-journals were acquired, including how issues were addressed, technology employed, and workflow, policies, and procedures modified. The program also uses audience participation as it looks at future challenges related to e-resources and JMU's planning to meet those challenges. en
