Re: Non-English Language Licensing Agreement?

In Argentina, the Secretariat of Science, Technology and Productive
Innovation (SECTIP) a govermental body, had negotiated for (consortial)
online only access to journals and data bases.

This is known as Argentine Library of Science and Technology. The portal
http:// www.biblioteca.secyt.gov.ar was launched on December 19th, 2002,
initially granting access to Elsevier-AP (Science Direct) and several
SilverPlatter databases.

As a requirement of our legal framework, the providers had the obligation
to present the Licensing Agreement in Spanish.
