LIBLICENSE Draft Open for Public Comment

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) announced that its North American working group will revise the LIBLICENSE Standard Licensing Agreement model license with support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The working group, led by Ann Okerson, CRL’s senior advisor on electronic strategies, published a discussion draft that is open for public comment until May 14.

LIBLICENSE’s model license, which was last revised in 2008, is used by U.S. libraries and consortia as a negotiating framework that helps libraries identify and incorporate license terms to provide patrons with the widest possible access to resources. This year’s revision is designed to strengthen libraries’ negotiating positions with regard to e-resources.

CRL plans to release the revised model license in summer 2014.
