New OCLC Research Podcast Available: "How Libraries License e-Content" with Dorothea Salo

In this interview, OCLC Research Senior Program Officer Roy Tennant talks with noted library author and "provocateur" Dorothea Salo about what keeps her awake at night: how libraies license e-content.

Dortothea Salo, Research Services Librarian and Adjunct Faculty at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, asserts that the current system is broken and must change. She further urges collective action by libraries and library consortia to change how licensing currently happens. Listen to the interview to hear exactly what she would like to see change, and when.

This is the fourteenth podcast in our intermittent series in which we ask the question, "What's keeping you awake at night?" of people we come across in our travels who are thinking ahead, worrying about the next big issue or imagining the next big thing. Additional podcasts are available on the OCLC Research Podcasts page and in iTunes.
