Abstract: When library staff resources are limited, administering post-cancellation access to electronic journal content can often be neglected when other demands of managing electronic resources take priority. Difficulties handling perpetual access include determining access rights from publishers’ license terms, verifying to what paid content the library is entitled, and retaining access when a journal is transferred to a new publisher. Libraries can utilize their existing electronic resources management tools to develop staff workflows for perpetual access entitlements. This paper is based on a presentation given at the Mississippi State University Libraries eResources and Emerging Technologies Summit on August 3, 2012.---This article has been published in "Serials Librarian, 65(1), 69-73"
