Creating a Standard of Practice for License Alternatives

The aim of our research is to establish a standard of practice for license alternatives, where a gap exists in library literature. Although a new concept, there is enough knowledge of best practices that will apply to alternatives. Much of the life cycle of electronic resources with and without licenses remains the same; therefore, a workflow can be framed for alternatives. Kansas State University created a standard workflow for managing license alternatives in its management systems Verde and Alma. We based this standard on the differences between licenses and their conventional alternatives, the NISO Shared Electronic Resource Understanding, as well as terms of use without registered or signed agreement. Aspects of this presentation will also apply to institutions without electronic resource management (ERM) systems. After considering the acquisition and review practices of license alternatives, a discussion of interlibrary loan as well as enforcing terms in the patron community will be offered. Interlibrary loan staff will easily interpret their procedures of Fair Use based on documentation in the ERM. Audience members will be given an opportunity to interpret terms and apply to a fair use example. Attendees can expect to learn a standard workflow as it applies to license alternatives.

At K-State, my job is split between administering the electronic resource management system modules and negotiating/documenting/interpreting terms of agreement for licenses and their alternatives.
