New Reporting Features in EBSCONET ERM Essentials
EBSCONET ERM Essentials, EBSCO’s eresource management system (ERM), now includes a highly customizable reporting feature that allows librarians to build, save, and share a broad variety of eresource reports. With flexible report options, librarians can personalize reports to see the specific data they need. To help with day-to-day collection management, favorite reports can be saved and made available for other staff to run at any time.
Creating a new report is as easy as:
- Choosing an existing report from any of the six report categories that cover details of the collection, orders and licenses
- Selecting which fields to include and in what order
- Setting the criteria to limit the report
- Picking the preferred sort order
- Naming the report and saving it to the reports menu to provide other staff members with instant access
This enhanced reporting feature adds to the already available tools offered in ERM Essentials to manage order details, streamline workflows, and keep better track of trials, all with the help of automatic population of data from the EBSCO Integrated Knowledge Base for titles ordered through EBSCO.
ERM Essentials significantly lessens the time-consuming activities of data entry and maintenance, allowing librarians to focus valuable time on other tasks. ERM Essentials shares vital eresource data and integrates seamlessly with other EBSCO Complete Management and Discovery Solutions, including EBSCONET, EBSCO A-to-Z, LinkSource, EBSCOhost research databases, EBSCO Discovery Service and more.
