Target Audience: All librarians who have a role in managing the use of licensed digital data
1) Participants will be able to identify issues and possible conflicts between how digital data users want to use data and how digital data is licensed to be used.
2) Participants will be able to design ways to inform users of permissible uses and to "monitor" the use of digital data.
While vendor contracts are getting more complex, the use of licensed digital data has become even more restrictive. Digital data is the vendor’s property, which it licenses to subscribers. Licensed data in our highly electronic library workplace makes compliance tricky. This program will elaborate on how to comply with restrictions on the use of licensed data, how to notify and instruct users on restrictions of use, and how a library can monitor the actual uses.
