Libraries sign individual licence contracts with publishers, either only for themselves or within a consortium. The multitude of different conditions, contract clauses and pricing makes the "licence forest" an impenetrable jungle. The Goportis Competence Centre Licences compiles knowledge and experiences in the field of licences, coming from the three central specialist libraries TIB, ZB MED and ZBW, in order to put them at other libraries' disposal. This takes the form of a nationwide and interdisciplinary information offer for librarians and contains the negotiation of consortium agreements as well as many services connected with licence acquisition and licence management.
