Years active: 2013-2015

NOTE: Beginning July 2013, the University of California Libraries launched a revised advisory structure. The groups within the previous structure are no longer active, including this group. See UC Libraries Advisory Structure (UCLAS) for information about the current structure.

Group Description

The Collection Licensing Subgroup was charged by the Council of University Librarians to make decisions for the University of California Libraries in the areas of shared acquisitions and the licensing of e-resources. The Subgroup reported to Strategic Action Group 3: Collection Building and Management (SAG3), which was charged by the Council of University Librarians to make decisions for the University of California Libraries in the areas of collection development, cataloging and metadata services, preservation and archiving strategies, and digitization strategies. The Collection Licensing Subgroup was a component of the advisory structure of the University of California Libraries, established by the Council of University Librarians in July 2013.

Key Responsibilities
