The current environment for electronic resource management, discovery, and access is a very complex system on the back end, with the goal of having a simple experience for users on the front end. One way to understand the ER environment is to look back to the beginnings and build the system from the ground up. The presenters will build an electronic resource environment from the basic components, simplifying the complexity, so that participants can better understand the relationship between the library services platform and integrated discovery system, and its implications for our researchers’ discovery experience.
