AALL Program Preview: A Closer Look at Four Key Licensing Provisions

Over the next couple days, CRIV will be highlighting some of the vendor relations-themed offerings at AALL in Seattle….

C1: Fishbowl Fun! A Closer Look at Four Key Licensing Provisions
Time: 4:00pm – 5:15pm
Location: 4C3

This program is geared toward librarians with experience in negotiating license agreements. It is not for the faint of heart, as the audience will be the “experts” for this program. They will share their knowledge with one another using a “fishbowl”(roundtable) approach, in which those with specific, related expertise are invited into the fishbowl. Attendees will become participants in this interactive program, as they explore four challenging issues in licensing—non-disclosure, fair use/ILL, usage statistics/counter-compliancy, and future trends in licensing. Bring your triumphs and horror stories, and be prepared to share and learn!

Takeaway 1: Participants will gain an understanding of four specific licensing provisions that have been identified by the Procurement Committee: non-disclosure, fair use/ILL, usage statistics, and future trends in licensing.

Takeaway 2: Participants will be equipped with new approaches to confidently negotiate favorable license terms in various library environments.

Takeaway 3: Participants will acquire an AALL procurement toolkit, including the Principles for Licensing Electronic Resources, the Guide to Fair Business Practices for Legal Publishers, and the (new!) licensing checklist and flowchart for law librarians.

Who should attend: Managers, directors, collection development librarians, and acquisitions librarians from any library type, whose duties include negotiating or reviewing license agreements for their library, and who want to share with and learn from their colleagues rather than the “sage on the stage.”

Track(s): Library Management, Collection Development and Cataloging
