This year's theme of Advancing Licensing Solutions for a Changing World triggered a range of discussions, from technical issues and out-of-print works to options for an international name identifier and the establishment of IFRRO
international consortia that includes OCLC and ProQuest.
The original concept for IFRRO was launched in 1980 as a working group of the Copyright Committee of the International Publishers Association and the International Group of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM).
As a founding member of IFRRO, the CCC has focused the agenda for the upcoming general meeting on Advancing Licensing Solutions for a Changing World: Collaborating, Adapting, Building, Advocating.
On Day 2, Armstrong is chairing the IFRRO Business Models Forum that will include a panel discussion that she says will "shake up content" with innovations in tools and licensing options.
"Cross-border licensing is also a particular area of focus for IFRRO right now," she says.
