Electronic resource management systems: implementation and transformation
As electronic resource management evolved it became clear it had data and workflow requirements that could not be sufficiently handled within the ILS. The ERMS brought a needed centralization and structure to these new requirements, but it still lacks the functionality and flexibility that many libraries need. The future is a reunification of library systems, with the ERMS acting as transitional software between the ILS and a new kind of resource management system that serves all formats.
