E-resources have marked an impressive footprint in managing library and delivering the information services to the end-users. There are few technical hurdles such as performance of technology, timely access; user interfaces, troubleshooting, skilled manpower etc. which have made e-resources more complex in managing information and delivering services. To overcome these issues, the library and information system require an effective and efficient Electronic Resource Management System to assist the librarian in managing the e-resources. Since the last two decades, the information and communication technologies have equipped the librarian with certain e-tools to provide the e-resources services to the end-users in an effective and efficient manner. The Health Sciences Library of Manipal University, Manipal, is a pioneer in providing services to the faculties and students of various disciplines. The library has large volume of e-resources in terms of book, journals, and online databases to cater to the need of library users. This paper makes an effort in providing the details on the ERMSS - an integrated e-resources management and search solution software which has provided for effective management of e-resources held by the Health Sciences Library.
