UKSG Licensing and Negotiation Skills for Librarians

Thursday 6 June 2013

The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, London SW1


A highly practical one-day Licensing and Negotiation Skills course to meet
the needs of librarians involved in the acquisition of electronic resources.


Course summary

Electronic publishing continues to bring major changes to the ways in which
information is provided, hugely impacting the role and responsibilities of
information professionals.  


One critical difference is the shift of emphasis from ownership to access of
electronic products, particularly journals. Access is subject to terms and
conditions which gave rise to the licence as a feature of most acquisition
agreements.  Publisher licences present libraries - and their patrons - with
useful rights but also with significant restrictions and responsibilities,
which means that a thorough understanding of licensing language, and its
effect, has become critical for librarians.  


At the same time, the concept of the 'list price' for digital journals has
become essentially meaningless as institutions and consortia select the
content they need and publishers and their representatives tailor deals to
meet these requirements.  When making these deals, publishers typically seek
to maximise their income whilst libraries typically strive to control their
costs, a dynamic which means negotiation has become a fundamental part of
the acquisition process.


The digital arena presents many challenges but also considerable
opportunities.  The key for information professionals is to gain a good
understanding of these new dynamics and develop the skills which will enable
them to gain the best from every licence and each negotiation.  It follows
that libraries whose staff have strong licensing and negotiation skills will
have considerable advantage, particularly in the current economic climate.


Why you should attend

The course has been written for serials and acquisitions librarians involved
in e-resource purchasing in academic institutions.  The course focuses
mainly on journals and other serially published content; librarians in
academic institutions who are being trained to undertake purchasing roles
will also benefit from attending.  Participants will gain a good
understanding of the key issues surrounding publisher licensing and
negotiations, together with practical skills and knowledge which they will
be able to use immediately in their professional lives.
