Licensing: Why, When, and How
October 13–14, 2009, hosted by Selden Lamoureux and Kristin Martin
If your library is like many others, electronic resources are taking up a bigger portion of the budget and growing every day. Licensing is often an essential component of e-resources workflow but frequently delays timely acquisitions and access. This e-forum will be a chance to discuss the mechanics of licensing e-resources and share your experiences and best practices with others. Come discuss the reasons for licensing, your strategies for making this a more efficient part of your workflow, and the future of licensing in your institution.
