[MDL] MDL January 2013 renewals

Hello All -

Please excuse my note below sent accidentally to the entire MDL listserv instead of to Karen and Cynthia only!

Since I have your attention, I'll take the opportunity to clarify the January 2013 estimates on your renewal lists.  Since actual renewal pricing is not yet available from the vendors for January renewals, pricing is estimated at 10% more than your cost for 2012.  We expect the actual costs to be less than the estimates.

January estimates have been provided so that you can fund your MDL deposit accounts for FY 2012-13.  You may choose instead to be billed later for January renewals.  Once pricing is available we will update your renewal list and contact you to confirm that you will renew.  You may leave the USERS: Action column as a "?" until we know the actual January costs later this year.

Let me know if you have other questions.

Best,

Beth Scheinfeld

Hi Beth,

I had assumed this as well and noted a "?" for our January 2013 renewals/orders. In the past, an estimate was done for MDL/USMAI January renewals/orders instead of actual. Please confirm.

Kind regards,

Lenore

Hello Beth,

I had thought that we weren't committing on the January renewals at this time.  Is that incorrect?

Hi Karen,

I'm checking with ARTstor now.  Sorry for the delay.  I'll get back to you shortly with the cost.

Hello - ArtStor still does not have a price. Should I make arrangements to purchase directly from the vendor?

Hello All -

By now each MDL/USMAI institution should have received a message from me with instructions for editing your renewal lists on SharePoint.  We are waiting for renewal pricing for less than a handful of items (most notably EBSCO Mental Measurements Yearbook and AccuWeather AP Images) - pricing will be added to your list as soon as we hear from the vendors.  NOTE:  All pricing provided is the final amount due and includes the LYRASIS 2% admin fee for applicable resources.

We need you to provide certain key pieces of information in these columns on your renewal lists:


1.       USER: Action: Replace the question mark (?) with Renew/Drop (for renewals) or Add/No interest (for new quotes).  Do this for each resource.

2.       USER: Comments: When your review is complete, make a note in this column: "My renewal list is complete."  You don't need to do this for each resource - simply note this one time at or near the top row.

3.       USER: Authorized by: When you have completed your review, note your name or the name of the authorizing person (only needed once at or near the top row).

4.       USER: Date Authorized:  Same as #2 & #3 above - note the date authorized when you are ready to submit your list (only needed once at or near the top row).

More detailed instructions and screen shots for editing the SharePoint renewal list are attached.

NEXT STEPS


1.       MDL members' final confirmation and authorization of renewal and new orders (by May 31 if possible).

2.       LYRASIS will send final prices to libraries via annual invoices based on 5/31 confirmation data (June 15).

3.       MDL deposit (61) accounts will be charged for July renewals (August 15).


As a reminder, to access your renewal list, go to http://extra.lyrasis.org/sites/groups/mdl_usmai/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.aspx and login with your assigned SharePoint ID and password.  Contact me if you need a reminder of the login details.

I'm here to help.  Let me know what you need.

Kindly,
Beth
