Electronic Resource Management
[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]
For those of you using III's ERM or considering the purchase of any
electronic resource management product, what do you do about
confidentiality issues in regards to an ERM product? Specifically, I do
NOT mean the control of access to records or fields in a record by your
staff, but instead, I mean access by the staff of the product you may
have purchased. For example, you may have a license agreement with
language to indicate that the license, the pricing, or other
documentation, etc. related to a product should not be disclosed to
others outside your library or department. What can you enter in this
case into an ERM product to which the ERM vendor's staff has access?
For those using III's ERM, can you block any fields from everyone's view
except your own designated staff? Can you prevent III staff from seeing
information your license may require be prohibited from external view?
Or do you just have to enter it elsewhere?
Thanks for any thoughts on this.
