Two very important Ex Libris contract-related matters – Named Users and Bibliographic Records – will be presented and discussed. This is an issue of how substantially over the contract numbers we are in each case, and how this could affect overall costs going forward if changes are not made. It’s important to know that March 31 looms as a reckoning point.
The webinar will present the problems and ramifications. But the webinar will also present solutions, with next steps and some ideas for strategies to consider at the college/institution level. The LSP Task Force and the Governance Committee have sorted through this and know how to move forward. With the engagement and involvement of every library, adjustments can be made to satisfactorily tackle these problems.
