Working with CAUL
Working with CAUL/CEIRC - for (new) publishers and their (new) representatives - presentation by Diane Costello, CAUL Executive Officer, at VALA2018, February 2018.
ConsortiaManager is an application for storing data in one place and enables its users to estimate the value of each journal subscription. From August, 2017 (the beginning of the 2018 renewals season) CAUL/CEIRC commenced using ConsortiaManager to process its publisher/vendor offers and renewals.
All publisher information previously located on the CAUL Website is now updated within ConsortiaManager. Access to ConsortiaManager is limited to our members only, however you may request a screenshot of the page containing your own information.
See here for a list of all current offers. Comprehensive information including proposals, licenses and other offer documentation is made available to our members via ConsortiaManager.
CEIRC Members are comprised of three categories - the Australian (CAUL) and New Zealand (CONZUL) universities - and our external participants, from other higher education and research institutions and government departments in Australia and New Zealand. Wherever possible, all interested participants are included in CAUL-negotiated agreements with publishers and other suppliers - in some cases, non-academic institutions may be excluded or offered different terms.
You can find up to date contact details for Australian CEIRC contacts here, each entry also includes current FTE & IP ranges:

- Author Rights Model License Language. "In early 2009, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) hosted a meeting to discuss policy development for open access repositories.

- Unnecessary provisions have been removed: the last clause on resolving disputes by an ‘expert’ (clause 12) has been removed as being superfluous. References to “agent” and “Publisher’s Representative” have been removed as they have, in the event, proved to be unnecessary.
- Clause 1 Definitions now includes definitions of Learning Object, Text Mining and Virtual Learning Environment.
- New usage rights in respect of these definitions will be found in clauses 3.2.3, 3.2.4, and 3.2.6.
