Atlanta, Ga., October 26, 2022: Equinox Open Library Initiative, a trusted leader in open source technology development and support for libraries, is presenting at the 2022 Charleston Conference, which will be held as both an in-person and virtual conference beginning with an in-person event in Charleston, South Carolina from November 1 through November 4 and continuing virtually from November 14 November 18, 2022. Staff member Erica Rohlfs and community partner Michael Kares from William Jessup University are presenting a poster "Why an ERM in a Small Library? Implementing CORAL at William Jessup University."
"CORAL, the open source ERM, provides William Jessup University library with a successful electronic resource management solution and offers several significant benefits," said Erica Rohlfs, Senior Implementation Project Manager at Equinox. "The overall goals were to break down the silos of information within the library, better organize institutional knowledge, and store library vendor information and history in a central location. CORAL ERM made that all possible."
CORAL ERM is used by libraries and institutions worldwide. The CORAL project is led by the CORAL Steering Committee and the software is developed and maintained by community contributions to the project. The community meets annually for the CORAL Summit.
