Library Licensing A Manual for Busy Librarians Excerpt :

This clear and concise manual will help librarians understand licenses so that they can become better reviewers, drafters, and negotiators. Libraries purchase or subscribe to countless resources that are governed by licenses—both digital products and physical objects like rare books or equipment. Many librarians, however, lack the legal expertise to comprehend and assess the clauses found in licenses. Authors Corey Halaychik and Blake Reagan have reviewed and edited thousands of contracts and use the lessons they've learned to help librarians sort through the often archaic and confusing language found in licenses. Library Licensing is a key reference for anyone responsible for reviewing, editing, negotiating, and agreeing to licenses that govern library resources. It contains essential information that will allow the reader to not only understand the language used in contracts but also to replace confusing and redundant language with clear and concise alternatives. Organized with ease of use in mind, chapters are written for quick and easy consultation and application.
