Join us for a mid-project update about this Mellon-funded exploration seeking common ground between publishers and librarians about eBook concerns. Libraries want unlimited simultaneous use and to provide course use and instructional materials. What business models can accommodate that need? What licensing terms are feasible to provide perpetual access and archival rights without DRM? How does ILL fit into the picture? Members of the working group representing the course use and licensing principles research teams will make brief presentations and invite you to participate in what is sure to be a lively discussion.
