The article discusses the challenges faced by libraries in implementing successful electronic resource management systems (ERMS) in the U.S. It states that ERMS is a tool that will allow libraries to answer challenges not met by present systems. However, one of the challenges is that each library is localized. It notes that libraries should check their workflow and decide the use of systems and resources. It also gives an overview of how the library will work during the implementation process.
