As the number of eResources we acquire continues to grow, Eastern Kentucky University Libraries have attempted to develop more effective ways to manage our online collections. Traditional methods for dealing with print resources do not apply to the entire eResources lifecycle, and we have been challenged to think creatively about possible solutions. Our strategies have included adjusting the staffing model of the eResources team, analyzing our workflow using process mapping to identify areas of improvement, and finding appropriate ways to incorporate support staff into the eResources workflow.
