On April 20, 2021, we announced an ARPA [prorated] model as a new option for collections that are time or circulation-based Metered Access.
Penguin Random House was the first publisher to agree to this ARPA prorated sales model. As of August 25, 2021, Hachette US, Macmillan Publishers and Pottermore now offer the ARPA prorated sales model. This option enables U.S. libraries to acquire digital materials specifically for the 16-month period of June 1, 2021 through September 30, 2022 or portions of this term. The price will be prorated based on the month of purchase.
