Librarians, publishers and aggregators are collaborating more today than ever before. As demand for streamlined approaches to licensing of content increases and content types evolve libraries, publishers and content aggregators have been working together to develop solutions for licensing content to enhance research and scholarly collaboration.

Consider eBooks and eJournals, fragmentation of content into individual articles, images, video and more. The advent of gray literature such as blogs and tweets as part of the research cycle. This ever-expanding need for content of all types has increased the need to develop tools to enhance research and discovery of the right content no matter the format. And of course there is copyright. Doesn't copyright always factor when licensing content?

This session will update us all on the latest and greatest licensing solutions and include an interactive discussion with the audience to hear what they are adopting, developing or hoping for!

Topics include:

  • How publishers, libraries and aggregators are jointly developing unique content sets that best target the needs of the academic and research community

  • How non-traditional content, like blogs and tweets, are used by library researchers that otherwise would be difficult to discover and collect.

  • The opportunities to license fragments of content including images and video and the value they bring to content creators and consumers

  • The role of copyright-how all this activity can be done legally and easily
