REMINDER: "Red Light, Green Light" web-meeting is next week
From: John Burger (

ASERL Friends:

A reminder that next week we will host a conversation with our longtime partner 
Roger Schonfeld (Ithaka S+R) and well-known ASERL leader John Ulmschneider 
(Virginia Commonwealth Univ Libraries) to discuss, "Red Light, Green Light: 
Brainstorming how ASERL members can test a new licensing model."  We invite 
interested ASERL libraries to join us for this presentation / commentary / 
discussion.  The current registration list is below, FYI.

In a blog post on August 16, 2017, Roger Schonfeld proffered a draft model for 
ways research libraries could design and undertake new processes to better 
support their licensing activities, seeking support from others within the 
library, the faculty they serve, and other units within the institution.  The 
basic tenet is for libraries to define criteria for assigning which content 
providers provide good value for the dollars they command in licensing fees, 
and a system of assigning a red-yellow-green moniker for those who provide 
poor-fair-good value or are otherwise problematic to the library and its users.

In this session, Roger will walk though his conceptual model, and ask for 
audience input to identify strengths and challenges.  John Ulmschneider will 
contribute his perspective on how such a model can support the work of research 
libraries and invite participation from others within the university community. 
 Ideally one or more ASERL libraries will be willing to serve as alpha testers 
for this model in the foreseeable future.  We will conclude the discussion with 
identifying other challenges faced by libraries continuing to struggle with 
licensing issues, and opportunities that could mitigate some of those 

(See for 
the original blog post.)
