About this item

While this guide for librarians, information professionals, and other non-lawyers has a US focus, it includes a note to Canadian and non-US readers. Addressing digital licensing in the context of the library, the guide covers basic and advanced concepts and gives practical suggestions for how to interpret, negotiate, and enter into digital licenses, the legal use of licensed content, legal rights and obligations in license agreements, and global aspects of digital licensing. The guide includes quick tips for successful digital licensing agreements, an extensive glossary, a list of online resources, and a checklist of elements of digital licensing clauses. Appendices provide the text of the sections of the US Copyright Act that deal with fair use and interlibrary loan. The book’s audience includes librarians working public, school, government, college, and special libraries; publishers, vendors, aggregators, and digital content owners who license their content to libraries; and those working in archives, museums, and corporations.
