eResource Management is one of OCLS’s original core services. On behalf of Ontario's 24 publicly-funded colleges libraries, OCLS's eResources Management service negotiates licensing terms and pricing with vendors, arranges trials for new resources, and facilitates subscription renewals. Supported by College Libraries Ontario and the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, OCLS's focus is to share best practices and to maximize the impact of collaboration while leveraging the most effective use of group buying power.
Vendors who are interested in working with OCLS should visit the Information for Vendors page.
OCLS maintains several tools to facilitate the colleges' acquisition, access, and use of their online resources, including ERMA, OCLS's custom ERMS (Electronic Resource Management System), and CLEAR Central, a database of licence summaries.
