All license agreements are signed by the Partner Universities on behalf of HKN subscribers. As a partnership, HKN takes advantage of the licensing expertise at each Partner University. This multi-disciplinary approach mitigates the risk to the signing partners, and ensures the terms of the agreements are appropriate for the subscribers.
HKN’s key purpose is to license health information resources on behalf of non-profit organizations in the Prairies through consortial purchases. Along with securing consortia discounts, HKN manages each step of the licensing life cycle from initial content identification and pricing negotiations, to sign-off and management of the license.
