Center for Research Libraries Webinar on New Model License for E-Resources

The Chicago-based Center for Research Libraries (CRL) will host a webinar on Coming to Terms: Behind the New Liblicense Model License on Wednesday March 4, 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Central Time.

Ann Okerson, a CRL senior advisor, will discuss the recent rewrite of the Liblicense Model License. The Model License provides guidance for libraries and other institutions seeking to license digital resources for their researchers. The new model license agreement provides both a template that can be used by librarians in negotiating particular licensing agreements and serves as a statement by the library community of what it considers acceptable policy and practice for licensing digital information.

Okerson will be joined by Ivy Anderson, California Digital Library; and Tracy Thompson, Executive Director, NELLCO (an international consortium of law libraries of which my place of work is a member).

The CRL is an international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries.
