This webinar will cover the steps and best practices for creating a license template for your institution, including creating standard language that you can use in negotiation and a review of model licenses we have in the field. I will also highlight new license clauses that we’re seeing in agreements and approaches for negotiating them, as well as emerging areas of interest and concern, especially with regards to new formats or acquisition models that require new language that has not yet been standardized. I will also share updates about popular standard model licenses.
