Conference Description

Electronic Resources Minnesota (ERMN) is a regional conference that will provide opportunities for those who acquire and manage e-resources to network, share best practices, participate in hands-on workshops, and learn from fellow e-resources staff.

Minitex is the organizer of this conference in collaboration with the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Libraries. If you have questions, please contact the organizing committee at


Cody Hanson will present "User Tracking on Eresource Platforms," a discussion of tracking and surveillance techniques used by publishers and advertisers on eresource platforms. How do we educate and empower users, and help to protect their privacy? How can we leverage our systems and our licenses to better align our users' experience with our values and professional ethics?

Cody has spent the last twelve years working at the intersections of libraries and the web. Currently, he's Director of Web Development at the University of Minnesota Libraries, where he leads a team that builds web sites and applications focused on user needs, performance, privacy, and accessibility. He holds a MLIS from Dominican University and a BA from Reed College.
