The digital archival collections group purchasing pilot is working with publishers to create a community-centred approach to lowering the cost of digital archival collections of primary source materials.
It follows the simple market principle that the more that is purchased, the lower the price.
No matter what Jisc band your institution is in, or how many products you buy from a publisher, you will collectively benefit from the total number of products bought by all participating institutions.
This is the second pilot for this project, with a fourth publisher on board, and will run through to July 2018.
Through this webinar you will find out more about to project, the participating publishers, and what collections are available through the group purchasing pilot.
