Resource Management SIG Overview
Charge: works with developers to define essential functions for acquiring and managing all types of materials: fund structures, orders, receiving, payment, claims, licensing, access and authentication methods, maintenance, usage and other statistics, other possible evaluation tools, and reporting. The SIG will consider options to show relationships between resources, and mechanisms and workflows needed to support these functions. The SIG will also need to evaluate the potential for applications supporting selection, decision-making, and analysis with the aim of ensuring that current work does not limit future innovation. The Resource Management SIG advises developers on the coordination needed between its operations and other functions, such as metadata management. It also advises developers on the interactions needed between libraries, vendors, and other parties necessary for successful resource management.
Convener: Kristin Martin
PO: Multiple POs covering different but related domains
Meeting: Friday at 8:30 AM ET
Scope: The Resource Management SIG oversees the work of the subgroups. Specific actions/topics to be covered in the meeting:
Review of app interactions/cross-app workflows between Acquisitions/ERM/e-holding
Input on development occurring from other domains outside of Resource Management
Review of priorities and gaps
Higher-level decision making and directives to subgroups
Creating new subgroups for additional areas as needed
Membership: Open to all interested individuals
Decision-making: The Resource Management SIG represents the functional expertise across the entire domain of Resource Management. Smaller decisions can be made within the subgroups, but larger issues and issues of prioritization will come to the Resource Management SIG for review and input. The RM SIG also provides feedback and guidance to develop occuring in other areas of FOLIO (e.g., Inventory).
The Work of the Resource Management SIG is large enough it has been broken down into several working areas, with subgroups devoted to these areas. Except as noted, subgroups are open to all interested individuals. Minutes from meetings will be posted to the wiki. New subgroups can be formed and existing subgroups’ work can be concluded as deemed appropriate by the RM SIG.
