Buyer's Guide and ERMS
The July issue of Computers in Libraries contains two interesting things. First off this is the annual "Buyer's Guide" issue. The good folks at CIL have been nice enough to make the Buyer's Guide and Consultants Directory available for free on their website. You can search this database for current information on a wide variety of products and vendors.
The second thing that may pique your interest is the cover story on "Electronic Resource Management Systems" (ERMS) by Marshall Breeding. ERMS is software that assists you in managing your subscriptions to electronic content. If you have access to a large number of ejournals, and the like, this would be a worthwhile read.
