The Digital Library Federation's Electronic Resource Management Initiative (DLF ERMI) has served as a catalyst for the commercial development of electronic resource management (ERM) systems and functionality. A variety of companies including ILS vendors, subscription agents, and publication access management services (PAMS) are all involved in ERM development. The advantages and disadvantages each type of vendor offers are discussed. Eleven of these companies were surveyed about the availability, compatibility, functionality, and distinguishing features of their ERM system. These vendors also provided their advice and guidance on how a library can begin preparing for implementation of an ERM system. Library professionals today are bombarded with e-journal management solutions. These solutions range from A-to-Z listing services, link resolvers, metasearch tools, and most recently electronic resource management (ERM) systems. This newest option provides a technical services backbone for controlling the entire life cycle of an electronic resource. Commercial ERM systems are currently flooding the market, and as many as ten systems should be available by the end of 2005. Appreciation for this speedy development can be directed to the Digital Library Federation's Electronic Resource Management Initiative (DLF ERMI), which has been instrumental in outlining the requirements for an ERM system. The DLF ERMI report has provided commercial vendors with a blueprint for development by noting functional specifications and best practices for ERM systems.1 This column will examine and compare the commercial ERM systems, both integrated and stand-alone, that are available from integrated library system (ILS) vendors, subscription agents, publication access management services (PAMS), and non-profit organizations. The issues of data standards and interoperability are complex, and understanding who the players are in this market is just a beginning. There are definite advantages and disadvantages for choosing either an ILS vendor or a non-ILS vendor, all of which should be considered when deciding on the ERM system that is best for your library. However, before a library selects their ERM system, there are several ways to prepare for implementation. Vendor suggestions for this process will be provided.

Traditional ILS vendors offering ERM systems often integrate with other modules libraries already use, such as cataloging, OPAC, and acquisitions. Third-party companies such as PAMS or subscription agents can offer their expertise in handling the complexities of e-journal data. The key to successfully implementing any of these systems is interoperability. A Dynix white paper notes three necessary elements for achieving such an environment: adhering to industry standards to create ILS systems with open architecture, enhancing current ILS modules to accommodate e-journal management, and developing specific ERM standards.14 When these criteria are realized, libraries will have the option of freely choosing an ERM system from ILS vendors, subscription agents, PAMS, or non-profit organizations based purely on the integrity of the product.
