Over the last couple of months I’ve been working on a license database for UBC Library. With the agreement between Access Copyright and Canadian universities expiring at the end of the year, UBC Library is taking a lead on promoting responsible use of copyrighted and licensed material. This database will answer many questions that instructors may have about using the Library’s electronic resources.
We’ve already received inquiries from Canadian university libraries interested in using this database for their own licenses, and yesterday Michael Geist mentioned it on his blog! Exciting.
