CORAL is a powerful, open source electronic resource management tool used by libraries and institutions worldwide. CORAL's interoperable modules allow libraries to streamline their management of electronic resources and leverage useful tools such as customized acquisitions workflows, license comparison and management, vendor and subscription management, and COUNTER-compliant reporting tools. The CORAL project is led by the CORAL Steering Committee and the software is developed and maintained by community contributions to the project.
"If you're seeking a tool to help manage electronic resources and wondering whether CORAL would be useful at your library, this is the place to find out," said Jennifer Weston, Product and Education Specialist at Equinox. "If you are already using CORAL, the Summit provides an opportunity to engage with a peer group working in electronic resources management and to connect with the community supporting the open-source software. Join us and bring your questions."
Equinox is pleased to host the CORAL Online Summit for a second year. The 2021 CORAL Online Summit was recorded and is available to view at: https://bit.ly/CORALSummit21. Last year's summit included presentations and participation from CORAL users worldwide.
