80. Licensing Discussion Group

The Discussion Group on Licensing covers some of the most important and timely issues facing libraries today, particularly as electronic information resources appear increasingly to be governed by contracts, which are used either in tandem with copyright law or to its exclusion. The DG has explored and continues to explore public policy issues, relationship of licenses and law, user rights, pricing, negotiating, and also training and workflow topics.

Recently, several key organizations have announced new programs that support free or very inexpensive scholarly e-journal access for developing nations (with particular emphasis currently on the biomedical sciences, as well as in other fields).

Accordingly, the IFLA Discussion Group on Licensing will devote its entire two-hour discussion period in Boston to these import and exciting developments.

A few brief presentations will be given, after which the floor will be opened up to reports of other free access programs and discussion from all participants regarding impacts, as well as whether IFLA should take a role in actively supporting such access.

The discussants will include::

  • Barbara Aronson, World Health Organization Library, Geneva, Switzerland (arrangement with six biomedical publishers to provide their journals)
  • Karen Hunter, Elsevier Science, New York, USA (participating in WHO access program)
  • Michael Kay, Open Society institute, Budapest, Hungary (access programs for 38 Eastern European countries plus South Africa)

'The ISO Interlibrary Loan Protocol: Demonstrating Interoperability'

The workshop will begin with a non-technical overview of the international standard for interlibrary loan communication, the ISO ILL Protocol. Six vendors with Protocol-compliant systems will demonstrate the exchange of ILL requests and responses to those requests. The messages will highlight messages used by the borrower (requester) as well as the lender (supplier). The workshop has been designed to provide time for participants to talk to vendors about their ILL products.

The vendors and their products include:
Auto-Graphics - Wings
Epixtech - Resource Sharing System
Fretwell-Downing Informatics - Virtual Document eXchange
The Library Corporation - Library. Request
Relais International - Relais
