license review: it’s what i do

pile of license materialOver the last couple years I’ve been working my way through our file cabinet of license agreement materials, to see what is relevant to keep and what can be discarded. To demonstrate what an onerous process it is I thought I’d show you the folders I’ll be looking through to organize our Wiley electronic subscriptions and purchases. Looks like we’ve got some stuff back from before the merger with Blackwell. Once the relevant material is gathered, organized by date (most current info on top), we’ll scan this license pile, save it to a web server, and link a URL to our resource record. I’ll translate the current license rights/restrictions for our patrons in a license record in our ERM. I wonder how many cups of coffee this one pile will require!
