Model Licenses and License Templates: Present and Future

This program will first review standard model licenses we have available in the field, including models such as LicensingModels.org and LibLicense, plus institution-specific licenses available online (permission will be obtained). The licenses similarities and differences will be compared, and strengths and weaknesses will be highlighted. Next, the program will review steps and best practices for creating a License Template at your institution, with standard language that you can use in negotiation for your licenses. The last segment will be interactive, gathering feedback from attendees about where our model licenses have gaps, including what formats or kinds of purchases require new language that has not yet been standardized (such as ebooks and streaming media), and gather suggestions for developing these as a community for the future, creating a new model license that we all can draw from.
