UKOLN Universities as publishers: competitors or partners in the digital revolution?

A paper prepared by Emanuella Giavarra, LLM, following MODELS 10

The 10th MODELS workshop on Rights Management organised by UKOLN, opened the discussion on the changing role and perception of the academic library, the justification of library exceptions under electronic copyright and the benefits of strategic partnerships with rights holders and other players in the digital environment. It was in this context that this discussion paper was prepared with a view to stimulating further discussion.
