Event Date: 23 Jan 2014

Background

Through the EIFL-Licensing Programme, we negotiate licence agreements with publishers and vendors of commercial e-resources on behalf of library consortia (and their member libraries) in partner countries.

In addition to achieving free or highly discounted pricing, we are able to negotiate the best possible terms of use by using the EIFL model licences. These reflect the latest international best practice in the licensing of e-resources, and offer much improved access provisions for users than standard commercial licences.

Following a recent comprehensive review, and in order to cover the full range of product types and business models now available, we will offer three new model licences going forward:

• E-journals (subscriptions and backfile purchase)
• Database and e-book subscriptions
• Perpetual access to e-books

What will the webinar cover?

In the third of three webinars on the EIFL model licences, EIFL legal consultant Emanuella Giavarra will provide an overview of how the new licence for perpetual access to e-books works, plus a detailed examination of key clauses.

She will also highlight the differences between this new licence and the EIFL model licence for datasets and e-book subscriptions.

Following the presentation, Emanuella will be available to answer questions.
