ERM System

New System for managing e-resources

The project has developed a new system - CoralLU - to manage the university's e-resources.

Two departments Electronic Resources and IT Services have developed the new system together. The new ERM (Electronic Resource Management) system is based on Coral. Coral is open-source software and an ERM system. 

The name is CoralLU because of the adoption of Coral to meet the requirements of Lund University. 

In the ERM system, we handle prices and license agreements for all our e-resources. We also developed a new module, which we lacked in our old system SMDB (Subscription Management DataBase). The new module provides the missing ability to handle statistics.  

Project time

We launched CoralLU on March 16, 2021, but the project continued until May 31.

Collaborative partner

Lund University Library thanks the Project Management Office at Lund University for their good and productive collaboration.
