About us

The Resource Management SIG 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.

Communication Channels


The RM SIG meets via Zoom on Fridays at 8:30 am Eastern U.S. time (see time in your timezone).  For more details, see the RM Meetings and Notes.
