ALCTS webinar: Using MOUs to Build Partnerships without Pressure

Date: Wednesday, February 10, 2016

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: This webinar will introduce an increasingly common method for negotiating library materials and services: the memorandum of understanding. It will present the MoU as a tool for lower-stakes arrangements that still require formal documentation and describe how MoUs are different from a standard contract under the law and in institutional practice. Finally, it will offer tips and resources to help librarians work with MoUs in their day to day practice.

Learning outcomes:

* Introduction to MoUs as a concept and an institutional tool

* Librarian preparation to contribute to and interpret MoUs

* Resources for developing MoUs and best practices for using them

Who should attend? Librarians, especially collection managers and administrators who negotiate partnerships and business agreements

Presenter: William Cross is the Director of the Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center at North Carolina State University where he provides information on copyright, licensing, open scholarship and education, and related topics. He has an M.A. in Technology & Communication, a J.D. in Law, and an M.S.L.S. in Library Science. Will worked in academic and law libraries, in constitutional litigation, and at the North Carolina Court of Appeals. He is an adjunct instructor in the UNC School of Information & Library Science.
