Librarians may be committed to securing perpetual access in license agreements for electronic resources, but that is only half the battle. The work necessary to track perpetual access entitlements and provide appropriate access in the event of cancellations or other triggering events is often complicated. What’s more, it may be unclear when an access situation has changed. In addition to journal content, libraries are also securing perpetual access to eBooks, streaming video and interactive resources, adding yet more complexity. In February of 2013, the presenter surveyed librarians to determine whether they were tracking perpetual access entitlements, and what systems they were using to handle these tasks. This session reports those findings and provides insight into the handling of perpetual access after the license agreement is signed.
