Abstract

This presentation explores the intricacies of licensing agreements to help develop strategies for negotiating the broadest possible access to electronic content for a library. Issues such as inter-library loan restrictions, archiving, duplication among aggregator databases, and withdrawal of content are discussed. The process of negotiating licensing agreements and how to identify those clauses that are particularly important or sensitive are described. How to draft library-friendly agreements and collaborative ways librarians and information providers can work together to find solutions to the evolving problems of content access and delivery are described.
