I notice that JISC have started to expand their 'Model License' over the
last couple of years to broaden the definition of 'Authorised Users'. In
particular to include "teachers of authorised users", where teaching may
be outsourced or franchised to local colleges of Further Education.
There are very few examples that I can see where this applies on an
international level. For example in most of the licenses where this
additional clause appears 'authorised users' are specifically stated as
"teachers of authorised users in the United Kingdom."
I would be interested to hear from any institutions involved with
transnational education who could share their experiences of negotiating
licenses for e-resources. For instance do you provide access to your
e-resources to "teachers of authorised users" outside of the UK (for
educational purposes of course) at all? Have you had to negotiate this
separately with the publisher in every case to gain access? How
successful has this been overall and can you pass on any good practice
tips and guidance to us please?
