HSLANJ GROUP LICENSING INITIATIVE’S “SPRING 2014 OFFER”
AVAILBLE TO ALL MAR and SE/A HOSPITALS

PRINCETON, NJ (February 24, 2014)—Participation in the HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative, a cost-effective consortium, is expanding beyond the MAR to include the entire SE/A Region. All hospitals and healthcare facilities in both regions are invited to participate in the Spring 2014 Offer, available beginning March 3.

“This groundbreaking expansion will allow more hospitals to afford the most current, highest-quality electronic resources, translating into the potential for better patient care,” said Project Manager Robert Mackes, MLS, AHIP. “From New York to Florida, we warmly invite all medical facilities along the East Coast to contact us and order their 2014 resources by leveraging group purchasing power.”

Formed under the umbrella organization Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey (HSLANJ), the GLI is known as the first consortium of its kind in the nation, providing access to the latest medical electronic resources. All price negotiations are handled by the HSLANJ GLI. Participation has swelled to more than 100 MAR hospitals over the past 12 years of the GLI’s existence.

Currently, the Spring 2014 Offer features more than 450 resources from 12 vendors, at a cost savings of 15-60% off regular pricing.

To receive a copy of the offer, please contact Mackes at 570-856-5952 or rtmackes@gmail.com. The deadline for participation is April 25. For more information on the HSLANJ GLI, including FAQs and testimonials from current participants, see www.hslanj.org/gli.
