Article excerpt

The Special Libraries Association has two informative programs in 1999 that will enable you to better understand the licensing of electronic resources. Our first pro- gram in the series was a videoconference held on March 4, De-mystifying the Licensing of Electronic Resources. This was a very popular program and was viewed in many areas of the U.S., Canada, and London. If you missed this event that explored the definition of a license, its legal implications, and the specific license terms and conditions in a licensing agreement, you are still in luck! The formal presentations from our panelists, Molly H. Sherden, partner, Peabody & Arnold; Pamela Clark, vice president, American International Group; and Trisha L. Davis, head, continuing acquisition division, Ohio State University, were taped along with the questions and answers from our host sites that were raised during the broadcast. All of this is available on videotape for $55.00 for SLA members or $65.00 for non-members. To order your copy, go to the Virtual Bookstore at http://www.slapublishing.org or call 1-202-939-9633.

The next program in the licensing series, Effective Negotiating Techniques for Licensing Content, will be held on October 14.

You'll gain insight into how information professionals can best position their needs as well as understand the rights and concerns of the content vendor. Learn the secrets to becoming a more successful negotiator! This educational opportunity includes an hour and a half satellite broadcast with question and answer segments (where we take your questions live on the air), workshop activities before and after the broadcast, and the opportunity to engage in informative discussion with your peers. …
