The moments in the e-resource lifecycle that often provoke the most discussion are those when critical decisions are made: the investigation/acquisition, review, and possible cancellation of resources. But what of the long periods in between, when a resource is licensed, implemented, and should remain fully available to its community of users? This workshop will explore the crucial, unsung work of ongoing maintenance.

Topics covered will include:
