Provider Agreements and Licenses #
OCUL maintains both a hardcopy and an electronic version of each publisher license. While the electronic copies of the licenses are maintained to be as accurate as possible, the print copy on file in the OCUL office is always considered the canonical copy.
The electronic license templates are available at https://ocul.on.ca/model-licenses and electronic copies of licenses are stored in a protected area of the OCUL site available to staff.
Where possible, the license signed by the content providers will contain the standard OCUL verbiage regarding local loading, perpetual access, and format transformation. The template for this wording varies by content type, and is provided in the form of a model license applicable to each type.
