All of our licenses are reviewed by university legal counsel and signed by
the vice president of the university.

[please excuse duplication - sent to Serialst and to ERIL]

Hello all,

We are a medium-sized research library, and would like to hear from other
libraries of our size regarding the signing of database, aggregator and
e-journal package license agreements. Are your license agreements
negotiated and signed by library personnel or is this handled by your
university attorneys or university-retained law offices?

Please reply to me directly and I will summarize to the list(s).
