MLAG/JISC Collections MLA Project on Subscription Based Online Resources
The MLAG/JISC Collections and MLA pilot project to increase access to subscribed electronic resources in the museums sector has been a great success for all involved. We are pleased to announce that the project will now be expanded to allow the rest of the museums sector to subscribe to e-resources at significantly lower cost and with a licence agreement tailored to the sector. The next phase of the project is underway. The MLA have agreed to fund MLAG members continuing participation in the project. Other museum libraries wishing to subscribe to resources are required to become affiliate members of JISC at a cost of £100. JISC Collections are now negotiating for deals on more resources and will be in touch when the details are finalised. JISC Collections have also been working on a new website and the deals are now fully integrated into the website.
Remember, ALL museum (and gallery) libraries can now take advantage of these deals so spread the word!
