The Black, White, and Gray Areas of Licensing

FREE ALCTS webinar
Date: February 29, 2012
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Building on a preconference offered at ALA Annual 2010 entitled “Taming the Licensing Tiger,” the presenters will carry on the conversation around library licensing issues and answer questions submitted in advance by attendees. Using an interactive approach employing chat, audience polling and pre-submitted questions, the presenters will cover hot topics and current challenges facing libraries in licensing digital content. The presenters represent the viewpoints of a publisher (Robert Boissy), an academic library (Becky Albitz) and a consortium (Tracy Thompson-Przylucki).

Participants will be asked to submit questions upon registration.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Get your pressing licensing questions answered by a panel of experts!
2. Learn the definitions of specific terms of art for licensing.
3. Understand the issues in licensing e-content for libraries today.
4. Explore the effects of the current economy on licensing practices
