ERM SIG: No meetings were held

Agreements Local KB subgroup (Martina Schildt):

The Agreements Local KB subgroup had 2 meetings on the following topics:

  • Owen Stephens updated the group on recent changes to the Local KB
  • Sabrina Bayer presented on  how they use Agreements Local KB at University Library Regensburg

eHoldings subgroup (Zorian Sasyk):

The group has had two meetings so far, focusing mainly on a) establishing an eHoldings implementers list of topics for discussion and possible user stories and b) starting to discuss these issues in meetings. So far, we have discussed the behavior of eHoldings-based external Agreement Lines, both in the Agreements apps search as well as within eHoldings package and title records. This work has generated several user stories and further higher level discussion about Agreements/AGLs in FOLIO.
