Abstract

Electronic information, especially that provided by monopoly organizations, are often beyond the means of a single academic institution. There is a growing trend towards joint purchasing, consortial agreements and partnerships. This talk will explore the potential and pitfalls of such agreements by examining and comparing various models for licencing and implementing shared electronic information services. A variety of case studies from different environments will be examined.
