What Consortia Manager Means to LOUIS
Consortia Manager was developed to meet the needs of consortia managing electronic subscriptions. This Electronic Resource Management (ERM) system saves countless hours for LOUIS by streamlining a workflow that was previously handled manually through email, phone calls, word documents, excel spreadsheets, outlook calendar reminders, etc.
