Subject: [IFLA-L] Libraries and RROs – an EIFL guide

A Reproduction Rights Organization (RRO) licenses the copying of published copyright protected works on behalf of its members. “How to negotiate with your national Reproduction Rights Organization. An EIFL
Guide” is intended as a practical guide for libraries if they are approached by an RRO, or when they need to approach an RRO themselves.
It sets out the role and tasks of an RRO, the types of licences on offer and highlights issues to consider when negotiating a licence. The Guide contains a checklist and offers tips for libraries to obtain the most suitable terms of use and value for money for the institution.
The guide is available online here, http://www.eifl.net/how-negotiate-your-national-reproduction-rights-or.

We hope it is a useful resource.
