Open Text Corporation, has announced that the National Economic Research Associates (NERA), a Marsh & McLennan Company, has implemented a library management solution from Open Text to consolidate the information holdings of nine distributed NERA libraries. The enterprise-wide solution based on Techlib addresses document control as well as traditional library management functions. NERA, a firm of consulting economists, focuses on the practical application of economics to solve business and legal issues. NERA provides research on a variety of economic policy topics. NERA's efforts and expertise provide objective analysis that is often applied in making complex legal decisions.Using the Open Text solution NERA has integrated library holdings across nine geographically dispersed locations. NERA has realized a number of benefits by consolidating access to physical resources, digital collections, and commercial databases including: establishing a single initial point of entry for accessing enterprise information resources; providing integrated access to research document collections and print collections in nine libraries to the entire organization for the first time; and automating traditional library services to facilitate sharing and optimize NERA's investment in print collections.
