Electronic Resources Licensing and Savings from the RML

There has been a bit of a buzz among the hospital librarians regarding the MCR Regional Buying Consortium (scroll to where you see Barbara Jones). The MCR RML presented a poster about it entitled, Increasing the Availability of Electronic Resources to Health Sciences Libraries. The RML developed a regional buying consortium for licensing of electronic resources in the MidContinental Region.

Many of the hospital librarians wondered if this was going to happen at all of the RMLs, and so far it is only the MidContinental Region who has created this program. This might be something to ask the RMLs about whether they would be willing to follow MCRs lead.

We all could use some licensing and group purchasing power.
