ASERL Friends: Some of you have been involved in the developments of the Charlotte Initiative, an endeavor led by our colleagues at UNC Charlotte for the past two years to create a methodology for permanent acquisitions of E-books by academic libraries. At the heart of the project are three core principles proposed for e-book licenses: * Provision of irrevocable perpetual access and archival rights. * Allowance for unlimited simultaneous users. * Freedom from any Digital Rights Management (DRM), including (but not limited to) use of proprietary formats, restricted access to content, or time-limited access terms. The project leaders have much to report, and are inviting all Charleston Conference attendees to attend a free symposium on November 6 to learn about project outcomes and next steps. The symposium will focus on possible solutions, including evolving business models and publisher feedback to the principles and will present highlights from the four research team findings. Charlotte Initiative Symposium: Research Project Outcomes and Next Steps When: Monday, November 6, 2017 -- 1pm - 4pm Where: Courtyard Marriott Charleston Hotel, 125 Calhoun St, Charleston, SC 29401 -- Grand Cypress Ballroom REGISTER: Space is limited! You must register separately from the main Charleston Conference to attend this session.
