Template for Your Institution

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.
