Are you curious about how electronic information resources are licensed systemwide for access by users at campuses throughout  the University of California?  How are resources selected, paid for, activated, monitored and assessed?  How are decisions made, and who performs ongoing maintenance activities? How are issues with these resources reported and resolved?

The UC Systemwide Licensed Content video series provides campus librarians and library staff with an introduction to systemwide licensed content at the University of California.  These short videos, commissioned by the UC Libraries Collection Licensing Subgroup and presented by California Digital Library staff, provide an overview of the different services, resources, processes and groups involved in the full lifecycle of systemwide licensed resources.

To complement the orientation series, CDL is planning to produce additional videos to provide greater detail on individual projects, common procedures and specific services. We’d appreciate your suggestions for future video topics – please see the video series web page for more information.

If you have questions about the video series as a whole, please contact your campus CLS representative (http://libraries.universityofcalifornia.edu/cls/roster)  and/or CDL at cdl-eresource-l@ucop.edu.
