Abstract

Purpose

The article aims to examine how the University of Maryland, College Park, evaluated two specific task management software packages that could make the pre‐order workflow for electronic resources more transparent to library staff.

Design/methodology/approach

The results from an electronic resources gap analysis done at the University of Maryland, College Park, were used as a basis to evaluate and select task management systems.

Findings

Two electronic resource management systems, CORAL and License Manager, were selected. They were evaluated in the areas of task, license and vendor information management.

Originality/value

This paper provides criteria that could be used to evaluate tools that support license management for electronic resources.
