Press Release from Group Licensing Initiative
Ground-Breaking News for SE/A Librarians*
The SE/A Region is excited to partner with the Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey (HSLANJ) and their innovative Group Licensing Initiative (GLI). Participation in this cost-saving consortium, offering high-quality electronic resources, could be available to you as early as the spring of 2014. More than ten years old, the GLI leverages group purchasing power for more than 100 health facilities throughout the MAR Region by offering outstanding electronic resources at the lowest prices possible.
In order to open participation to our region, the HSLANJ GLI is conducting a very brief survey.*
All librarians in the region should have received an email from Robb Mackes recently, inviting them to complete this 12-question survey designed to take no more than 10 minutes. Please do so at your earliest convenience.
If you did not receive a survey link, or for more information, contact:
Robert T. Mackes, MLS, AHIP
Executive Director, HSLANJ
Project Manager, Group Licensing Initiative
Many thanks and we look forward to opening participation in the HSLANJ GLI to the SE/A Region!
