Where next for resource licensing? (JIBS / Eduserv workshop 16/06/10)

Where next for resource licensing?

Joint JIBS User Group and Eduserv event
Wednesday 16 June, 10.30am - 4pm
Khalili Lecture Theatre, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

Do you know what your staff and students are allowed to do with the journals, databases or e-books your library provides for them?

Are you are an e-resources manager, already grappling with the thorny issues surrounding licence agreements?

This joint JIBS and Eduserv event will explore the issues around licences including :-
· the expanding customer base and distributed sites of most libraries
· the issues raised by cross institution arrangements, collaboration, affiliation and franchising
· our users’ expectations in a digital environment
· varying authentication systems and the management data they provide
· developments in machine-readable licences

Come along to this event to hear from some of the key players, and to put forward and discuss your problems and ideas.
