Licensing in libraries : Practical and ethical aspects, Karen Rubb-Serrano (ed.)
AbstractAlthough written for American university libraries, this compilation of articles does deliver on being a practical introduction for an academic librarian to licensing for consortia. The book would be a valuable asset in a library school collection as it compiles the point of view from different aspects: the users, the academic library consortia and commercial content producers.
