Digital archival collections group purchasing pilot expands as EBSCO joins Adam Matthew Digital, Brill and ProQuest to offer content

EBSCO has joined Adam Matthew Digital, Brill and ProQuest to offer over 70 digital archival collections to the higher education sector as part of the ‘Digital archival collections group purchasing pilot‘ phase two.

As with the initial pilot, the project leverages institutions’ collective purchasing power to lower the cost of acquiring digital archival collections around the principle ‘the more products collectively purchased per publisher, the lower the price for any institution’ – no matter what Jisc band the institutions falls into.

By Karen Colbron

I focus on access and use of digital content in learning, teaching and research, offering guidance and support through the ‘Making your digital collections easier to discover’ online guide and training aimed at Jisc’s higher education members.
Additionally, I run the digital archival collections group purchasing scheme – an innovative purchasing model based on a very simple principle – the more products collectively purchased by our members, the lower the price for everyone involved.
