E-Resources Licensing

This archived webinar is provided by NISO.

E-Resources Licensing: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Part I
Part II

About the Webinar:

Not every librarian is a lawyer, but many have to have an in-depth understanding of legal issues to succeed in their jobs. Licensing, contract and copyright law all have significant impacts on our community. This seminar will provide an overview of the parts of copyright law with which librarians have historically been concerned and how the introduction of license agreements moved the library/publisher relationship more deeply into the realm of contract law.

Participants will learn about basic legal terminology common to most licenses and about some distinctions and exceptions directly tied to the licensing of content.
