E-PRESS RELEASE

WORLD WIDE WEB ELECTRONIC CONTENT LICENSING RESOURCE AVAILABLE FOR
ACADEMIC LIBRARY COMMUNITY

The Yale University Library, with support from the Commission on
Preservation and access & the Council on Library Resources, is pleased
to announce the availability of the beta version of LIBLICENSE, a World
Wide Web resource intended to provide information and assistance for
academic and research libraries as they read and negotiate licenses
with information providers for electronic information content in a
variety of formats, CD and online.

The LIBLICENSE URL is:

http://www.library.yale.edu/~Llicense/index.shtml

The creators are requesting comments in order to enhance and improve
the work. Once a more final version is achieved, the URL will be
slightly changed. Currently, readers will see an annotated resource
presented in much the same organizational style as an actual electronic
content license, with samples of language and commentary on the
suitability of that language for libraries. Readers will note that
links to some sections are pretty much completed (license vocabulary,
licensing terms & descriptions, examples); other sections will be
further enhanced introduction, licensing resources, bibliography).

The creators welcome all your ideas, as well as suggestions for
additions to links and bibliographic citations.

Several individuals have been involved in creating this resource:

Ann Okerson, PI for the Project, Yale University Library (Associate
University Librarian for Collection Development & Management)

Rod Stenlake, Esq., Consulting and authoring contract attorney
(formerly in corporate practice in New York City; now a Visiting
Scholar at the Yale University Law School)

Georgia Harper, Esq., External consultant and author (Copyright Counsel
for the University of Texas Systemwide)

Alex Adelman, Web Designer (Senior English student at the University of
Pennsylvania.

A form is provided within the LIBLICENSE resource for your comments.

A content licensing discussion list has been started to accompany this
site.
