Description: This four-week online course provides an overview of acquiring, providing access to, administering, supporting, and monitoring access to electronic resources. The course offers a basic background in electronic resource acquisitions including:

  • Product trials
  • Licensing
  • Purchasing methods
  • Pricing models

An overview of the sometimes complex relationships between vendors, publishers, platform providers, and libraries is also provided.

The course is offered several times each year.  You only need to take one session.  Sessions tend to sell out weeks in advance.

Format: Students receive login instructions one week prior to the course start date. Students have 24/7 access to the course site for the four-week period, and aside from assignment and quiz deadlines, the course may be completed at their own pace. Instructors provide guidance and feedback as students work their way through the course material. Weekly, instructor-moderated chat sessions are the only live course events that students are asked to attend…
