Current Developments in E-Resource Licensing and Rights: What You and Your Institution Need to Know

Current Developments in E-Resource Licensing and Rights: What You and Your Institution Need to Know

Electronic resources, whether commercially licensed or created in-house, carry with them a myriad of complex issues. Deciphering the legal terminology found in contracts between libraries and vendors can be a daunting task. In addition, born digital created projects and digitization projects and programs implicate copyright as well as other areas of the law including privacy, the right of publicity and donor or author agreements. Merely understanding the basic rights to use licensed resources poses a challenge. Our speakers will shed some light on deciphering and recording necessary licensing and rights metadata in local systems. We will get up-to-date information on developments in licensing and rights at the California Digital Library and as well as news about the ongoing work being done by the ERMI/ONIX/NISO joint effort to develop an XML license expression format.
