Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

License agreements and copyright law have a great impact on how we acquire, manage and use digital content. This workshop is designed to help attendees advance their knowledge of the legal framework that supports the acquisition and management of this content using typical electronic resource management (ERM) scenarios. Presenters will provide an overview of copyright and contract law, and discuss how common library and academic uses are allowed under each. Specific topics to be covered include negotiation tips and issue spotting in contracts; how to interpret and translate contract terms to common library service points; how to respond to contract breaches; and technical implementation related to contract compliance. Using a “flipped classroom” model, attendees will be assigned some basic theoretical reading on copyright law and licensing prior to the workshop, in preparation for group exercises and hands-on activities.  Attendees will have an opportunity to express the most significant challenges that they face at their own institutions for group analysis and discussion.

This workshops will be available to in-person attendees only and requires an additional ticket. It will not be available via the Online Conference.
