Governance and Management

Participation in national site licensing initiatives will be conducted through existing library consortia (formal or informal).

Initiatives will adopt legal and technical systems of delivery that are cost-effective, accountable, and sustainable.

One consortium acts as the lead, working with the vendor and coordinating efforts of the other consortia behind the scenes. Each consortium coordinates communications with its own members. Consortia share the responsibilities of taking the lead.

The governance and management structure will ensure accountable decision-making at the individual consortium level, and build on the communications infrastructure that exists in current library consortia. In addition, inter-consortia communication will be facilitated through existing consortia staff and the use of a “Consortia Canada” listserv.
