  2. 2. Negotiating e-licences) 10 November 2009 | Slide JISC Collections Lorraine Estelle CEO JISC Collections
  3. 3. A bit about JISC Collections <ul><li>Funded by JISC to negotiate licence agreements on behalf of all UK higher and further education institutions and research councils </li></ul><ul><li>We negotiate licence agreements for a wide range of online resources </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Journals </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Databases </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geospatial material </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>E-books </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multi-media </li></ul></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
  4. 4. What are the benefits <ul><li>By providing a single point of negotiation we provide benefits for publishers in terms of efficiencies, these benefits transfer to academic libraries in terms of lower prices </li></ul><ul><li>By providing a single point of negotiations we bring the combined buying power of all the academic institutions – thus we are in a stronger negotiating position than any one institution </li></ul><ul><li>Because we negotiate on behalf of so many we can insist on the use of our model licence, this means </li></ul><ul><li>Libraries have one type of licence to manage not many </li></ul><ul><li>Because we negotiate from a position of strength we are able to insist on more favourable terms than the publisher would otherwise offer ~ or an individual institution could negotiate </li></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
  5. 5. Some facts and figures <ul><li>We delivered over £25million in annual efficiency gains in 2008/09 </li></ul><ul><li>We delivered £8.7 million in annual efficiency gains through the NESLi2 and NESLi2 SMP programmes </li></ul><ul><li>There are no price increases for 70% of renewals we negotiated in 2008/2009 </li></ul><ul><li>We negotiated annual opt out clauses for all renewals and new agreements </li></ul><ul><li>We started with the year 2007/2008 and are pleased to report that most collections are being well used. For example, between September 2007 and August 2008, over 2million articles were downloaded from the Oxford Journals Archive. An average price per download is 58p </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>But it is not all rosy </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Procurement of licensed content from monopolies is tough ~ especially when we cannot cancel ~ the 30% who did not agree to 0% increase are the largest of the publishers, and those with content that cannot be substituted </li></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
  6. 6. The Scottish Higher Education Digital Library – a shared library for Scotland <ul><li>In the first scheme of its kind in the UK, and working closely with the Scottish Confederation of University and Research Libraries (SCURL), we negotiated e-journal agreements with three leading academic publishers on behalf of all higher education institutions in Scotland. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cambridge University Press </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>American Chemical Society </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Springer </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What is different about SHEDL? </li></ul><ul><li>Why did it work? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the benefits for publishers? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the benefits for institutions? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Can we extend the model to include other sectors? </li></ul>November 10, 2009 | | Slide
  7. 7. Working together – some of the challenges <ul><li>Whole collections or individual titles </li></ul><ul><li>Definitions of the “Authorised User” </li></ul><ul><li>Access Management </li></ul><ul><li>Budget cycles </li></ul><ul><li>EU Procurement processes </li></ul><ul><li>Demand driven ~ not supply driven </li></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
  8. 8. Working together – some of the potential benefits <ul><li>Widest possible access and dissemination of information and knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>Efficiencies in the licensing process </li></ul><ul><li>Potentially increased buying power </li></ul><ul><li>Not paying for the same people twice – (e.g. doctor who can access the same resource from the NHS from his university and from the public library) </li></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
  9. 9. Looking forward <ul><li>The scholarly information market place is unique and presents unique challenges: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Each journal is unique and has not substitute </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The move to electronic has not made the process of scholarly publishing less expensive </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Library budgets have failed to keep pace with increasing outputs and as scholarly outputs continue to increase, and with the potentially dramatic impact of countries like China and India, this problem too can only get worse. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>A significant number of libraries still require print copies of the journals they purchase, although in a 2009 ALPSP survey 91% of respondents wanted to move more material to electronic only and it is a prerequisite for considerable system-wide cost savings– estimated to amount to £983m globally (RIN, 2008) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Much of our work in 2009-2010 is focused on addressing these issue </li></ul>10 November 2009 | | Slide
