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.
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.
Two electronic resource management systems, CORAL and License Manager, were selected. They were evaluated in the areas of task, license and vendor information management.
This paper provides criteria that could be used to evaluate tools that support license management for electronic resources.

The author places the departure by the Change to Win Coalition from the AFL–CIO in contextual and theoretical terms. For context, it is argued that associational rights for U.S. wage-earners have historically and generally been subordinate to the rights of capital owners. As such, the rules regulating industrial relations tend to punish broad acts of wage-earner solidarity, channeling labor toward a strategy of achieving a larger share of the rewards of production through private contracts with employers. This has given birth to business unionism, a style of union representation characterized as exclusionary, neutral with regard to political party, business-like in operation, and accommodative to market capitalism. Presently, the internationalization of capitalism is challenging business unionism by exposing its contradictions and vulnerabilities. As political theory would predict, this is pressuring the AFL–CIO and affiliates to socialize labor–capital conflict. This shift, in turn, resulted in several major points of contention within the house of labor, leading to the departure of the Change to Win affiliates.
