Charlotte Initiative

The Charlotte Initiative for Permanent Acquisition of eBooks by Academic Libraries

Licensing Principles Research Team

The charge of this research team is to address the current licensing issues surrounding eBooks. The Licensing Principles Research Team (LPRT) will first explore the fundamental issues in eBook licensing that are keeping libraries from achieving a collection that meets the core principles of the grant; then it will develop possible solutions.
