RE: Including eReserve provisions in licensing contracts

I very much agree with Rick's statement.  The clauses in the license
describing authorized users should cover registered students in an official
class.  Moving on to define normal reserves activity within the license
seems unnecessary and perhaps conflict producing if  your institution has
already taken the appropriate measures to prevent access by unauthorized
