Access Copyright renewals update (pinned post)

Updated: February 8, 2016

The time has passed for universities to decide whether they will renew their collective licences with Access Copyright. Below is a table (after the jump) I will use to keep track of the decisions once they become public. The table includes all of the universities that are members of Universities Canada (formerly AUCC). This table only shows whether they’ve renewed the current licence, but does not indicate if they are in negotiations for a new one.

(I’m going to go ahead and assume that the schools who had opted out previously will not enter into a new licence.)
