Boston Library Consortium (BLC) adds author rights language

According to the Boston Library Consortium (BLC), on September 30, 2011 the BLC Board of Directors unanimously accepted the recommendation of the BLC Scholarly Communication Priority Committee” and adopted the Author Rights Model Language, as represented in the NERL (North East Research Libraries Consortium) model contract.

In an email to the BLC membership, the BLC Board of Directors said: “In essence, the Directors committed the BLC and their institutions to good faith attempts to insert this language into new serials contracts and into serials contracts renewals.”

We have added the Boston Library Consortium (BLC) to our Adopters page.
