Update on progress with Additional Authorised User Access

Following workshops held in December 2007 JISC Collections and the NESLi2 Negotiating Agent have been seeking publisher compliance with a variation to the definition of Authorised User in the model licence and for Additional Authorised User Licences.

Definition of an Authorised User

The variations are to include the following groups in the definition of Authorised User:

* Retired Members of Staff
* Teachers of an institution's students who are not employed by the institution.

Additional Authorised User Licences

Additionally, JISC Collections has been asking publishers to agree to Additional Authorised User Licences.

Further details can be found here.
