EWWW!: Electronic Resources in the 21st Century

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the Jean Russell Quible Technical Services and Collection Management department at Virginia Tech, legacy workflows were preventing us from taking our electronic resources management into the 21st century. To make the changes that we needed, our Acquisitions Department head launched EWWW (Electronic Weekly Workflow Work). The EWWW model has enabled us to map out our existing processes and to efficiently design new workflows for our licensed electronic resources. With a sense of humor and some creative sticky notes, workflows have been transformed from dull to delightful. This presentation will cover the evolutionary process of transforming legacy electronic resource management workflows.

Assistant Director, Electronic Resources & Emerging Technology Services, Virginia Tech
Annette is the progenitress of the popular scholar's extension LibX (libx.org) and the new visualization of discovery code libFX (libfx.lib.vt.edu).  Is Annette a brunette Moses leading the Virginia Tech libraries into The Promised eLand or is she a modern-day Carrie Nation wreaking havoc in the saloons of print with her digital hatchet?  Yes, she is!

A lot of things have changed in the thirty-odd years Ladd has been in the library biz. Not being able to smoke at your desk in Tech Services anymore is one of the biggies.
