Licensing Terms and Rights Information

As the number of digital resources in library collections grows, libraries have increasing difficulty in managing, and ensuring that they comply with, the ever-growing number of different licenses that they hold. Libraries need to be able to:

  • express licenses in a machine-readable format
  • load them into electronic resource management systems
  • link them to digital resources
  • communicate key usage terms to users

Publishers will also benefit from the ability to maintain their licenses in a standard machine-readable form.
