Database licensing agreements can be both high stakes and high stress. This webcast will give you the updated information you need to understand, negotiate and monitor agreements with publishers and database aggregators. We'll review the major hot button issues and trends in database licensing, including Open Access and Trusted Computers, Digital Rights Management and Fair Use Rights. We'll also get specific about user terms and conditions, including restrictive User Authentication and Confidentiality clauses. We'll discuss successful strategies for negotiating troublesome contract terms, offering real life solutions to common licensing situations. And finally, we'll take a brief look at new legislation and technologies that are changing the relationship between libraries, vendors and content.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
