Jisc Unveils Scheme for Reducing Digital Archive Collection Prices

Jisc announced, “The digital archival collections group purchasing pilot by Jisc is now a fully-fledged scheme thanks to the success of two pilots that saved participating universities a total of £458,000 [about $589,000]. Under the scheme, Jisc Collections works in collaboration with nine publishers to make digital archive collections more affordable for [higher education] organisations.” The publishers are providing 110 primary source digital archival collections among them; they include Brill, De Gruyter, EBSCO Information Services, ProQuest, and Taylor & Francis.

“The success of group purchasing lies with the collective buying power of our members driving the discounts they all benefit from based on the total number of purchases per publisher,” says Karen Colbron, digital content manager at Jisc. “Following the successful pilot phase, we’re pleased to offer this acquisition model as an on-going annual service to our members, significantly increasing the number of publishers, products and subject areas covered.”
