Beth Ashmore, Associate Head, Acquisitions and Discovery (Serials) at NC State University Libraries, has been selected to represent both TRLN and the Association of Southeast Research Libraries (ASERL) on the Steering Committee for the E-Resources Accessibility Partnership. ASERL and the Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) entered into a two-year partnership to advance accessibility for library electronic resources, with the goal of providing equal access to information for all library users. The Steering Committee to guide the partnership is comprised of five BTAA representatives and three ASERL representatives. Given the institutional overlap between TRLN and ASERL, one of ASERL’s three Steering Committee members will also represent TRLN.
Ashmore came to NC State University Libraries in January 2019 to provide leadership and management for the Acquisitions and Discovery department. She brings extensive experience with electronic resources management to the Steering Committee.
