From the JISC Content and Digitisation Blog:
Jisc is working in collaboration with three publishers, ProQuest, Adam Matthew Digital and Brill, in order to make digital collections of primary source material more affordable for institutions to purchase, so that researchers, teachers and learners can enjoy access to an even wider range of resources.
The group purchasing pilot aims to support Higher Education institutions with a more efficient, coordinated and transparent approach to the acquisition of digital archival collections and was set up by Jisc in response to requirements from its members.
The pilot runs between March-July 2017. Each of the three publishers have made available a selection of digital collections and have set different discount triggers based on how many products are bought by institutions across any of their products.
