Event Details

The Discovery Licensing Clinic is designed for 15 delegates to consider practical responses to the Discovery open licensing principles ( It will offer an opportunity to demystify licensing options, to consider their differing purposes, and to discuss the range of tactics that institutions might adopt in scoping metadata releases and making the associated licensing decisions.

There will be a practical focus throughout the day on identifying and addressing key issues in real service settings, leading to the development of feasible action plans.

Who should attend – Managers and decision makers in libraries, archives and museums who are responsible for collections and discovery services or interested in establishing the foundations for future service developments.

Approach – Working round the table, the Clinic will undertake a step-by-step analysis, hopefully enabling you to come away with a feasible action plan
•    What objectives are institutions seeking to address
•    What are the licensing and data release options?
•    What first time and ongoing effort is involved?
•    What options will work for our various situations?
•    What would a practical robust plan look like?

Your queries and examples - Delegates are encouraged to bring any materials for discussion or guidance, which can be covered in open sessions or in one-to-one dialogue with the experts present.
