Re: Including eReserve provisions in licensing contracts

         I would concur with the comments by Rick Anderson and
David Goodman on the absence of a need to include a specific
e-reserves clause to use for e-reserves.

         I do recall, and the publisher(s) slip my mind, where e-reserves
were prohibited.  In those cases, I had no problem removing the clause
when I indicated that "e-reserves" in our usage simply meant providing a
link.  Those publishers had thought that it meant that we would be
downloading and mounting our own copy of an article.  With a durable
URL, I think we'd be foolish to want to do that.
