Social networking for law librarians and friends of law libraries
Negotiating licensing agreements for e-resources is often a burden. SERU allows libraries and publishers to forgo the traditional negotiation process in favor of using a set of "common understandings". Using SERU can save both time and costs for the library and the publisher. In addition to learning about what SERU is and how it works, hear how both librarians and publishers feel about SERU and how SERU is used in practice. What are the legal implications of SERU? Is it feasible in the law library setting? Using a contracts perspective, librarians and publishers alike can
learn how using SERU will affect their business relationships.
