This is a three-credit course on digital librarianship focusing on licensed, vendor-created electronic resources. This course is designed to give students an overview of the managerial, standards, legal, and technological issues related to the management of licensed resources such as e-journals, e-books, full text databases, digital audio and video files, and e-references resources. It has a significant copyright and licensing component. The course is useful for students in all library tracks. The course has no prerequisites and no technical background is required, although we will cover some technical material from a managerial perspective.
