eJournal bundles to date, now also eBook packages SHEDL Principles Common access to all patrons in HE Electronic only provision (DD for print) Cost contributions based on historic cost Maintain core subscriptions, access full bundle 3 year contracts, ideally including transfer titles Minimal annual increases SHEDL Features Annual renewals with 3 to 4 publishers each year. Existing publishers are: Springer, ACS, CUP, OUP, EUP, Berg, Portico, Intellect, Project MUSE, (IEL & IEEE). Recent agreement on the first joint purchase of an eBook package (Springer). Face challenges in engaging with additional publishers who see growth in Scotland. Face challenges in changing budgets and/or remit of institutions. Continuing to develop and considering a more comprehensive approach to developing a digital library.

Consortium eBooks Fin-eLib Collaboratively funded SHEDL Electronic Collection Managing a digital collection Easier for the students No physical constraints Does require virtual management processes (clearing catalogue, link resolvers etc) Efficiency in shared procurement and management Expanded collection for many SHEDL partners Common collection across Scotland Other aspects of collection support could follow single LMS, single discovery system, single IL
instruction, Publisher Benefits on Partnering with SHEDL Sustaining their business Single invoice and administrative efficiency 3 year bundle deal with sustained income Focus sales effort elsewhere Extend sales through formats journals, eBooks, course packs, multimedia Preferential access to Scottish authors (originators) SHEDL Collection Development How to decide on targets: - Invite suggestions from SHEDL institutions - Audit current coverage - Listen to offers from publishers - Propose tender-based bids And when a target is identified. SHEDL Collection Expansion How can a closed consortium agree? - Trust - Full knowledge of offer and institutions - Acceptance of fair pricing models
- Historic purchase Usage modification when appropriate Payment by institutional academic income Allowance for specialist institutions - Acceptance that not every deal in beneficial for all - Some difficult and challenging discussions - Celebrate the achievements SHEDL and the Big Deal consequences SHEDL and step changes in title number SHEDL Complexities and Developments Partnering with Publishers - Need to cope with VAT transitions - Need to agreed transfer title developments - Need to agreed institutional merger policies - Wish to see expansion to NLS, FE and alumni - Wish to see open access dealt with fairly - May underestimate the importance of our researchers to the publication/purchase cycle
SHEDL eBook Purchases Potential mechanisms for eBook purchase: Title by title from publishers (list price) Title by title from aggregators (tender for supply) Lease Publisher packages (subject or total packages Purchase / lease PDA (and variants) from aggregators PDA (and variants) from publishers But how can we compare and judge value?
How can we determine eBook value within bundles? Partnership for eBook provision Key: Lease Purchasing Purchased Pre 1990 1990-1999 2000-2003 2004-2007 Example License 2008 2009
