Library Tier Model for Database Licensing
As of May 2013, the majority of BC ELN databases are licensed under a version of the March 2008 BC ELN Model License. In February 2013, BC ELN developed a revised model license. The revision process featured a review of the model license given changes in Canadian copyright, and additions to the license to cover e-books and perpetual access. The revised model license will be used when licensing new resources or when it is necessary to revise an existing license (for example, to cover e-books). Most databases will remain under the existing licenses.
