Thursday 19th September – London
This one-day seminar is designed for librarians involved in e-resource purchasing in academic institutions; librarians in these institutions who are being trained to undertake purchasing roles will also benefit from attending, and for publishers who need to understand the key issues facing them.
Electronic publishing has brought huge changes to learned information provision and to the role of librarians and other information professionals. ‘Ownership’ of content is no longer a simple matter of receiving and storing print copies on a shelf. Publishers and intermediaries license access to electronic resources, and so the licence has become a feature of most sales agreements. Information professionals consequently need to become familiar with the terms and conditions of licences, their meaning and their implications
Who should attend
The course is designed for librarians involved in e-resource purchasing in academic institutions; librarians in these institutions who are being trained to undertake purchasing roles will also benefit from attending, and for publishers who need to understand the key issues facing them. Participants will gain a good understanding of the key issues surrounding publisher licensing and negotiations, together with practical skills and knowledge which they will be able to use in their professional lives.
Jisc Collections has an international reputation for expertise in the negotiation and licensing of scholarly online resources. It currently manages around 200 agreements and its model licence is seen as a ‘gold standard’ across the academic sector.
At the end of the course participants will:
- understand the key issues surrounding publisher licensing, and how these impact libraries
- be familiar with the concept of a Model Licence and the important clauses in publisher licences
- be familiar with the principles of successful negotiation of terms and conditions in the context of licensing online information resources
- understand the fundamental dos and don’ts of e-resource licence negotiation
