Specifications include, but are not limited to:The new continuing resource request process often starts with selectors proposing new resources via shared Word documents (stored on the G drive); if approved, the document is emailed to acquisitions staff to license, order, catalog and establish access. This process relies on email communications or shared documents to help with decision making. Over time, these emails and documents can easily become siloed and disorganized. The project will consolidate the continuing resource selection process, a much desired feature for the CORAL community, with licensing, acquisition, and access setup process in CORAL to make the whole workflow more efficient. Continuing resources are subject to yearly renewal when the subscription period ends. The process for renewing a resource can be complex and involve different activities and decision points. For example, significant price increases often trigger a librarian to evaluate if a resource will be renewed or cancelled, which is then communicated to the acquisitions staff responsible for processing the renewal or cancellation. The current setup in CORAL requires some workarounds to manage the renewal process. This work will integrate the renewal authorization process into the workflow, make the process transparent to all stakeholders and modify the current workflow function in CORAL to make it more intuitive
