Curious about how electronic collections are built and managed? In this one-hour webinar, members of the OCUL Information Resources Committee take you behind the mysterious curtain and into the world of content licensing. You will learn what a license is, why we have to license, how we do it, the impact licensing has on library collections and their use, and current challenges. If you’ve ever wondered about how this major activity is carried out, and what are the key elements, dynamics, and challenges, this presentation is for you!
