DRM: The Discussion Continues

Librarians have been struggling for many years with digital rights management (DRM) protections built into electronic documents. These protections often make it difficult or impossible to treat an electronic acquisition in a traditional way, i.e., by purchasing it once and sharing it serially among a community of users. Librarians have entered into a dialogue over the past year with publishers and other vendors (e.g., aggregators) of DRM-protected products (standards, journal articles, books, etc.). During this session, you will hear from attendees about how they have been coping (or not) with the DRM challenge. Afterward, we’ll determine where we need to go from here.

MODERATING:
Bert Saul, Simpson Gumpertz and Heger Inc.; Sabina Tannenbaum, LTK Engineering Services
