Electronic Journals Specialist
I work within Resource Management and am a part of the Access Team. I work with electronic journals and electronic journal collections. This includes activation, link resolver issues and updates, collection updates and maintenance, updating holdings and cancelations. I notify the Libraries when there are downtimes to journal collections, platform changes and important feature updates for the collections that I am primarily responsible for. I assist our team with Open Athens issues and new CDC approved electronic journals. I work with our Ebsco aggregator and vendors to ensure that are online journals are active, accessible and accurate.
