Fall Offer Released from HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative

First, the Fall Offer is now available thanks to the negotiating of the HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative. All medical librarians in the MAR region are invited to participate, whether this is your first or your 12th year of participation. Group purchasing benefits all! Details and links to the offer are below.

Second, our circle of participation is ever-widening. Beginning with the Spring 2014 offer, all medical librarians in the Southeastern/Atlantic (SE/A) region will also be invited to participate. Feel free to reach out to your colleagues in this region and let them know how the GLI has benefitted your library. This is a huge step for the GLI!

Third, the HSLANJ organization is nearing completion of a newly-designed website, including a section devoted to the Group Licensing Initiative. Click here to visit the new website!

Details of the Fall 2013 Offer:
More than 100 medical facilities throughout the Middle Atlantic Region regularly participate in the GLI. We appreciate your support and feedback in presenting an extensive, Fall 2013 Offer, with the following features:

Please Note – Two Options for Completing Your Offer!

The Fall 2013 Offer is an interactive, “working PDF,” meaning you can type directly into the PDF.

  • You still need to print and sign the first page of each worksheet, but hopefully this new format will save you from hand writing everything.
  • The totals from each worksheet transfer to the order summary sheet, and fields such as hospital name, contact name and bed count auto populate throughout the document.
  • Please check your numbers on the summary sheet to make sure they transferred properly. You can input correct numbers in those fields if they didn’t transfer properly.

Or use a NEW 2nd option:  Online order entry!  Key your orders online to save paper, time and energy.  Upon completion, you’ll be presented with an order summary that must be signed and emailed to Robb Mackes to complete the order.  Please contact Robb today for more details and to activate your online account.
