PRINCETON, NJ (September 27, 2017) – All medical librarians in a 20-state area including the NNLM’s Middle Atlantic (MAR), Southeastern/Atlantic (SE/A), and New England (NER) Regions are welcome to participate in the technology-sharing, cost-cutting consortium organized by the non-profit Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey’s Group Licensing Initiative (HSLANJ GLI).
Deadline to participate in the Fall Offer is Friday, November 17. Due to the online ordering system, no exceptions can be made regarding the deadline. The HSLANJ GLI greatly appreciates and welcomes early orders.
The HSLANJ GLI is recognized by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) as the lead organization capable of assisting health sciences librarians obtain resources.
“We are a state library, so we are dependent on government funding (which this year wasn’t looking so great) so knowing we can talk to our stakeholders and let them know we can get great prices by participating, it shows we’re making all the efforts to have good practices with our budget…. Certainly being a small library with a limited budget, there’s no way we’d be able to purchase resources on our own… being in a consortium is the only way we could make that happen,” says Alison Wessel , Director of Library and Information Services, Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, New Castle, Delaware. Wessel began participating in the HSLANJ GLI’s Offers in 2016.
Additional feedback from librarians, along with previews of vendors’ fall resources, can be found at hslanj.org/news.
