The ElectronicResources COI invites staff from CLIC libraries to attend our free, hands-on workshop: Licensing Electronic Resources. The workshop will be held on Friday, February 15, 2013, 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Pre-registration is required. To register, please email Maureen Fitzgerald at Maureen.firstname.lastname@example.org Thursday, January 31.
Workshop Description: This basic workshop is designed for library staff who negotiate licenses and who want to learn more about the legal background of license terms for electronic resources. This workshop would also be beneficial to library staff (reference or ILL) who do not negotiate with vendors but who work with the electronic resources and need to know about license terms for those resources. The workshop addresses the basic concepts of contract law (licenses as contracts) and offers a hands-on look at the components of a standard licensing agreement. Instructor: Ruth Dukelow
Location is TBA, based on number of registrants. Information on the workshop location and other details will be emailed in early February to those who have pre-registered.
Please feel free to contact Maureen or Ruth if you have any questions.
