CORAL Licensing provides a way to store and access digital copies of current and expired license agreements and related documents as well as associated agreement metadata. It helps make library license agreements more accessible to personnel through select searchable metadata fields and assists institutions in tracking specific pieces of information included in legal agreements.

You can define which terms are important for your organization to track – both document types and types of license clauses are customized through the administrative front end. CORAL Licensing is also a flexible document management system, useful in anticipating a variety of agreements and institutional goals for managing agreements. Parent/child relationships help easy identification of the association between agreements and child amendments. More features include signature tracking, the ability to associate organizations and consortium as well as the ability to upload any additional attachments.

Additionally, Licensing has an add-on for delivering up the license terms within the context of accessing a specific resource. The Licensing Terms Tool add-on works by querying either the SFX or SerialsSolutions openurl resolver API to obtain the available resource holdings and then queries the Licensing module for the governing license terms. Interlibrary loan staff, for example, will find this easy to use add-on invaluable in identifying the interlibrary rights governing electronic journals.
