ASERL Publishes Recommendations for Libraries on Negotiating Electronic Resource Agreements

The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) rolled out a new booklet, The ASERL Eleven: Recommended Principles and Terms for Electronic Resource Agreements, along with an accompanying Google Drive document. They “summarize 11 key principles and suggested language to assist ASERL libraries and others in securing better terms for content and services they license. Published under a Creative Commons Non-Commercial License, the Google Drive document allows users to easily copy/paste the suggested license language as part of negotiations with service providers.”

“Having ‘The ASERL Eleven’ gives ASERL librarians clear principles to guide their work and helps to forge consensus on key issues in our relationships with publishers and other vendors,” says Tim Pyatt, president of ASERL’s board of directors.

Christopher Cox, ASERL’s incoming president, adds, “Licensing is an evolving topic; we see this new publication as ‘Version 1.0’ and expect to receive feedback and suggestions for future revisions and improvements.”
