Getting on the Same Page: Aligning ERM and LibGuides Content

For many years, the University of North Texas Libraries' ERM and LibGuides pages were administered separately with no shared oversight. Over time, the number of subject terms and keywords assigned in both systems grew and diverged significantly, leading to confusion on acceptable search terms and a wide variation in subject specificity. Recently, a committee was formed to review and revise the LibGuides subjects and associated processes. This work led to a revamping of the parallel work done for the ERM to not only align with the LibGuides process, but to feed into the LibGuides A to Z database list. This presentation will give background on the development of the initial processes, the review and revision of the processes,and the issues encountered in developing a workflow for importing data from one system to the other.
