ONIX for Publication Licenses: Adding Structure to Legalese

About the Webinar

Communicating to other on staff at the library and to end-users the terms that have been negotiated in a license arrangement is not an easy process. Simplification and distribution of the information in a license are critical components to greater distribution and understanding. ONIX for Publication License (PL) is a structure of encoding and sharing in a machine-readable format the terms that exist in a license. This seminar will update attendees on the application and use of ONIX-PL. It will also explore future developments in the management of electronic resources.
