Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI): Resource Advisory Committee

What We Do

  • Determine options (models) for the process of identifying an expanded set of online resources to license, and models for short and long term funding.
  • Make recommendations for establishing expertise on licensing terms and legal aspects, as well as negotiation strategies.
  • Give consideration to the issues of authentication and digital archiving for these resources as appropriate.
  • Provide an estimated budget, and an assessment of the broader impact on strategies for legislative funding, such as issues related to the public good.
