Ann Okerson, CRL senior advisor on electronic resources strategy and founder of Liblicense, will discuss the recent rewrite of the Liblicense Model License.  The Liblicense model is a rich source of information and guidance for libraries seeking to license digital resources for faculty, students, and researchers.

Okerson will talk about the work of the development team, and the new issues, questions – and land mines –libraries face in negotiating acquisition of electronic resources today.  She will be joined by other members of the team: Ivy Anderson , Director, Collection Development & Management, California Digital Library; and Tracy Thompson, Executive Director, NELLCO (an international consortium of law libraries).
