Established in 1985, the North American Serials Interest Group, Inc. (NASIG) is an independent organization that promotes communication, information, and continuing education about serials and the broader issues of scholarly communication. NASIG welcomes anyone interested in the serials information chain. Inspired by the United Kingdom Serials Group (UKSG), NASIG held its first conference at Bryn Mawr College in June 1986. The annual conference, usually held in late May or June, offers a premier opportunity to meet others representing the diverse interests of the serials community and to hear speakers who are on the cutting edge of scholarly communication.

The Licensing Lifecycle: From Negotiation to Compliance

The license negotiated at the beginning of the electronic resource life cycle impacts access to the resource throughout the life cycle. To simplify the negotiating process, ensure that terms favorable to the library are included in the license and that the license complies with Texas A&M University(TAMU) and State of Texas regulations, the library developed a licensing   checklist. As a way to make completed licenses more accessible, TAMU uses the electronic resources management system CORAL to store license documents and terms. This presentation will look at the TAMU’s licensing process, the creation and evolution of TAMU’s licensing checklist and how CORAL is used to share license details. Despite our best efforts, the occasional license breach does occur and so this presentation will also look at some examples of breaches and the steps TAMU takes to resolve these breaches so that access can be restored as quickly as possible.
