Licensing has been a predominate means of governing the transfer of electronic journal content between publishers and libraries since the early 1990s. In this presentation, Eschenfelder will provide an overview of what has and has not changed in the last 20 years of e-journal licensing practice. As part of this history, she will describe what model license recommended terms have been widely adopted and which have not since the early 2000's with specific reference to scholarly sharing, interlibrary loan, electronic reserves and perpetual access. More broadly, she will also discuss why alternative means of governing transactions between libraries and publishers (e.g., SERU) not replaced licensing given their potential to reduce transaction costs.
