Registration is closed


Electronic resources have their own inherent complications, and this is particularly true at the licensing stage. Without careful planning, an institution may find themselves facing unexpected content loss after a subscription cancellation, a title cessation, or publisher shutdown. In this webinar, Michelle Polchow, Electronic Resources Librarian at UC Davis and James Phillpotts, Director of Digital Operations Innovation at Oxford University Press, will share their insights and best practices for licensing for both parties. Their perspectives will advise on the necessary steps that librarians should take before and during licensing to fully understand entitlements, as well as ways that publishers can commit to digital preservation in licensing terms to prevent possible content loss. 


Who should attend:  

Librarians with beginning knowledge of licensing and an interest in or responsibility for the preservation/management of digital content. Early career librarians and library students are encouraged to attend.  



James Phillpotts, Oxford University Press  

Michelle Polchow, University of California, Davis
