R. Ranganathan, Father of Library Science Birthday. The main objectives of the Seminar is to create an  awareness amongst library fraternity on the various issues concerning licensing agreements  signed with publishing industry.  The digital  revolution has greatly influenced the way libraries procure, access and store information for  use of its patrons.  The present digital Era has posed numerous challenges to the libraries in fulfilment of their major missions of preservation  and dissemination of information.  Libraries provide access to digital resources with bundle or  individual subscriptions/purchases.  Sometimes rights of its use and ownership are confusing.   

          Libraries need to undergo numerous licensing agreements for providing the access to digital resources to the patrons, whether it is related to subscription of databases, computer software, purchases of e-books and other e-resources. 

The terms and conditions in licensing agreements are generally complicated and are drafted in typical legal and technical languages which is some time difficult to understand.  The proposed seminar will discuss above issues and will provide opportunities to participants to understand above from the experts in the field.
