Licenses Insight Librarians Beginners

ALPE is the NILDE "E-journals Licenses Database", a support for the librarian who carries out the Document Delivery service and must operate in accordance with the uses allowed by the publishers.
It contains the terms related to the document delivery service, extracted from the electronic licensing agreements signed by the Italian libraries belonging to NILDE.

ALPE helps librarians to:
- identify the appropriate license agreement in reference to a certain document (article/chapter of book) in electronic format that must be sent to the requesting library;
- identify the valid contract for your institution (upon Login);
- understand the uses allowed by the publisher through a simplified scheme of the permitted uses.

ALPE, through the use of API, is displayed directly in NILDE on the Lending screen by clicking on the Find Licensed* button. Trova Licenze
