ARL Encourages Members to Refrain from Signing Nondisclosure or Confidentiality Clauses

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Board of Directors voted in support of a resolution introduced by its Scholarly Communication Steering Committee to strongly encourage ARL member libraries to refrain from signing agreements with publishers or vendors, either individually or through consortia, that include nondisclosure or confidentiality clauses. In addition, the Board encourages ARL members to share upon request from other libraries information contained in these agreements (save for trade secrets or proprietary technical details) for licensing content, licensing software or other tools, and for digitization contracts with third-party vendors. The Board adopted this position at the ARL Membership Meeting in Houston, Texas, on May 22, 2009. This statement was released June 5, 2009.
