You don't mention what kind of USB devices you are interfacing with so 
not entirely sure what sort of library you are looking for but there are 
two cases:

   - Devices that use raw USB protocol or generic USB classes such HID: 
You probably want to use libusb to talk to these devices. A quick search 
on "libusb erlang" returns [1] from Tony's Github account.

   - Devices that expose themselves via virtual serial ports: This is 
pretty common these days and you can use any UART library to talk to 
these devices. Again, Tony has an Erlang UART library[2] you should look at.
