Members of the HELIN Consortium Licensing Task Force are researching permitted uses of copyrighted electronic books as stated in consortial license agreements and will be contacting various library consortia. Our committee would like to create a standard license agreement, which our consortium could use with its e-book vendors and publishers. The HELIN Consortium http://library.uri.edu/screens/libinfo.html is based in Rhode Island and is composed of eleven academic libraries and twelve hospital libraries. 1. Do you currently have a consortial licensing agreement, which contains terminology and clauses that specifically cover electronic books? And, do member schools within your consortium have any of the following rights written into your contract? *Downloading & Printing: Download, print, and reproduce a reasonable number of copies of a portion of the licensed e-book content. *Interlibrary loan requests outside of your consortium: Fulfill ILL requests through electronic delivery systems such as Ariel, or by mailing or faxing a print copy of a portion of the licensed e-book to a requesting library. *Interlibrary loan requests by member institutions within your consortium: Fulfill requests by emailing a link to the complete licensed e-book instead of only a portion of the licensed content. *Remote Access: Provide remote access to authorized users including remote access through a third-party proxy server *Electronic Reserves and Course Packs: Link to e-books for use by students in a class for the purpose of instruction. *Distance Education/Online Courses: Link to e-books for use by students in a class for the purpose of instruction. *Perpetual Access: Purchased content will be made available to you in another format (i.e., CD) if you terminate the contract, or the content provider is no longer able to provide you with electronic access. *Archival Back-up Copies: Permission to make back-up copies if you terminate the contract, or the content provider is no longer able to provide you with electronic access. *Logos and Trademarks: Permission to use an e-book provider's logo and trademark on your authorized web pages and in-house library publications such as electronic pathfinders, i.e., LibGuides. *Thumbnail photos of book covers: Permission to use an e-book provider's thumbnail photos of book covers in your OPAC or on other authorized web pages and in-house library publications. *Embed Widgets: For example, permission to add instant messaging such as Meebo (ask-a-librarian e-reference) on your e-book's interface page. *Usage Statistics: The licensor/vendor agrees to provide the licensee (consortium members) with usage reports on a periodic basis. [Ideally, the usage reports will conform to COUNTER and/or SUSHI standards.] 2. Further, were you able to persuade your content provider/vendor to remove the indemnity and Force Majeure clauses from your contract? 3. If your consortial license agreements with e-book vendors address any of the points listed above, would you be willing to send us blank copies (without pricing or other confidential data) so that we may have examples of wording which is favorable to your consortium? Thank you for your time, and we look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience!
