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

By March 2017, the Mellon funded “Principles for Permanent Acquisition of eBooks for Academic Libraries” will produce recommendations for the licensing and acquisition of eBooks.  The goal is to support the ability of academic libraries to build eBook collections for the long term.

At the heart of the project are three core principles proposed for eBook licenses:

  1. Unlimited simultaneous users
  2. No Digital Rights Management (DRM)
  3. Irrevocable perpetual access and archival rights

The UNC Charlotte based Project Team and Working Group of  librarians, consortia, and non-profit publishers collaborates to guide the project.  Please join us for brief updates on research in progress (course use, user experience, licensing terms, ILL, platforms and preservation models, and publisher practices.  Come with your questions and discuss how you can help the project succeed.
