Name variations abound in ERM, continued September 24, 2008

Posted by Mia in ERM Module.

It’s astonishing, but I actually have to lengthen my previous list outlining the number of name variation possibilities with ERM:

  • the “Custom Database Name” field in Serials Solutions.  Now this is really something.  Woe betide the unsuspecting users of this field – it cannot be searched, it cannot be retrieved, and doesn’t display anywhere unless you’re inside the record and know where to look for it.  Yet this is the name that will arrive on your spreadsheet.

The pendulum has swung way too far away from the sensible precepts of authority control.
