Dis-owning collections
October 07, 2007
It is now conventional to make a distinction between what libraries own 
(e.g. books, DVDs, ...) and what they license (e.g. e-journals). 
However, we can only use 'own' in a circumscribed way. This has been 
made clearer in the mass digitization projects. Libraries cannot do as 
they wish with the digitized copies of copyrighted material. And we know 
that in most library collections, a large part, maybe a majority part, 
is still covered by copyright. What the library in fact 'owns' is the 
cost of managing the physical materials and of making them available to 
users. They do not 'own' the content, and are limited in what they can 
do with it. In fact, they may end up licensing the very content that 
they thought they owned once it has been digitized....</MTWrap>
