The ALCTS CRS Costs of Continuing Resources in Libraries Interest Group
invites you to attend:

Perpetual Access--is online content really forever?

Sunday, January 25th, 4:00-5:30 pm

Hyatt Regency Denver, Capitol Ballroom 2

How do librarians track the many changes that affect access to purchased
electronic content? When ownership changes hands, who is responsible for
actively pursuing licensed content access? What is the meaning and
application of "perpetual access" clauses in electronic content
licenses? Who can guarantee libraries ongoing access to electronic
materials? How are library staffs working to address these issues? The
panelists will talk about the newest trends, challenges, workarounds and
the most up-to-date status of the various initiatives regarding
perpetual access.
