Ex officio members include DeAnne Luck (co-chair), Tenn-Share Database Coordinator, Leah Allison (co-chair), TLA Electronic Resources Management Roundtable Chair, and Sue Maszaros, TSLA’s TEL Coordinator.
TERC’s goal is to gain cost savings through consortial purchasing of electronic resources by investigating methods, determining priorities, and encouraging participation. The committee will work with various agencies, including providing input and advisement on content for the Tennessee Electronic Library.
The group’s first meeting will be held on Oct. 29 at DataFest. Topics for discussion include options for consortial purchases as well as the formation of subcommittees and determination of chairs. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for products, please feel free to contact your committee representative, DeAnne (email@example.com), Sue (Sue.Maszaros@state.tn.us), or Leah (firstname.lastname@example.org).
