Notes. We put them everywhere, in order records, item records, database records, etc. They tell us how to process something, mark historical decisions, and guide us in our next steps. We would be lost without them, and yet they’re typically unformatted, by-the-seat-of-your-pants kind of information. This session explores the theme of ‘notes’ from several perspectives as librarians who use different e-resource management systems talk about what kinds of notes they make, where they put them, and what their uses are.
