This session will offer a blueprint for crafting a clear picture of licensing priorities for your library and home institution and for developing an orderly negotiation process to ensure each agreement is properly reviewed and handled. Beginning with a brief overview of standard licensing terms for e-resources, we will discuss how to draw up your own checklists and draft legal provisions customized to successfully fulfill the information needs of your library’s users, while adhering to your institution’s local legal requirements. We will also identify practical methods for reviewing contracts to identify the issues in clauses that are most often challenging or problematic.
