Deadline Extended for Group Licensing Offer, Open to All Middle Atlantic Hospital Libraries
PRINCETON, NJ (April 15, 2013)—The April 15 deadline has been extended to April 26, for participation in the Group Licensing Initiative formed under the umbrella organization Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey (HSLANJ). The organization’s spring 2013 offer features more than 446 resources from 10 vendors, at a cost savings of 15-60% off regular pricing.
Participation, open to all hospital librarians throughout the Mid-Atlantic region (DE, NJ, NY and PA), has grown from 75 to more than 100 Mid-Atlantic hospital libraries during the past year. Known as the first consortium of its kind in the nation, the non-profit Group Licensing Initiative strives to provide access to the highest-quality, current electronic resources in the form of medical journals, books and databases, and at the most cost-effective pricing available thanks to the organization’s leverage of group purchasing strategy.
To receive a copy of the offer, please contact Project Manager Robert Mackes, MLS, AHIP, at 570-856-5952 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for participation has been extended to April 26 due to high interest.
