The Fundamentals of E-resource Licensing

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This program will explore the role of license agreements in the e-resource environment, and detail best practices for creating agreements that protect the rights of users and libraries. Following a discussion of the legal framework for licensing, the session leader will walk the attendees through a typical license agreement and discuss the issues that various sections and clauses may present, including those that might be encountered in a consortial vs. single institution environment. The “Florida Virtual Campus Guidelines for E-Resource Licensing”, developed in conjunction with an intellectual property specialist lawyer at the University of Florida, will serve as a backbone to this discussion. The session will close with some practicalities for reviewing and editing license agreements, creating schedules and addenda that cover additional terms and requirements not generally part of a standard agreement, and tips for successfully negotiating terms with vendors.
