Current Parameters for Licensing and Circulating Digital Content

This presentation by Nancy Sims was part of a NISO virtual conference entitled Owning, Licensing, and Sharing Digital Content. Sims offered this as the abstract of her talk:

Roughly speaking, the legal bounds of what libraries can do with materials in our collections are set by both statutory law and the contracts and licenses we agree to with vendors. This session will outline some of those legal constraints, but will also explore how our choices and actions within libraries - such as negotiating contracts, enforcing contracts, and strategically challenging laws - can affect the state of both our contractual obligations and statutory law, and provide better access for our users.
