The number of titles in the EBSCO eBook Academic Collection was misstated in yesterday's announcement, below.  The actual number of titles in the collection is 130,000+.  The title list<http://www.ebscohost.com/ebooks/ebooks-subscription-listings> is at EBSCO's website - download the North American Collection (all titles) or North American Part 1 and Part 2 separately if size is an issue.  The eBook offer is for an annual subscription to run July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.  Orders placed after July 1 will be prorated to align with the common end date.

Hello All -

Thanks to all who have approved their quotes in MyLYRASIS or have been in touch to request an extension.  Several schools still have outstanding quotes to approve in MyLYRASIS<https://www.lyrasis.org/_forms/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=/_layouts/Authenticate.aspx?Source=/Pages/MyLYRASIS.aspx> - please follow the attached instructions or contact me for help.

As in past years LYRASIS will prepare annual invoices for use in funding your MDL accounts for FY2014/15.

Here is the timeline for the rest of the renewal process:

MAY 30 - LYRASIS issues invoices for FY2014-15 subscriptions including January estimates.
JULY 1 (or subscription start date) - Online access to new and renewal resources is active.
JUL 31 - MDL FY2014-15 invoice payments due including January estimates.

EBSCO eBook Academic Collection New Offer:
A new offer of the More-the-Merrier type is available to the MDL for the EBSCO eBook Academic Collection, about 70,000 titles.  Discounts start at 5% and there is the potential for a 25% discount depending on the number of MDL participants.  Final pricing will be determined by the number of confirmed orders on June 15.  Renewal pricing for current Academic Collection subscribers will include the discount but will not count toward the consortium participant count.

Contact me for a quote for the EBSCO ebook Academic Collection.
Title List at:
http://www.ebscohost.com/ebooks/ebooks-subscription-listings - scroll to the North American Collection

Consortium Participation Discount

2 - 4 = 5%

5 - 9 =  10%

10 - 19 =  15%

20 - 29 = 20%

30 plus = 25%

Let me know if you have questions or if I can help in any way.

Hello Everyone -

MDL renewal quotes are being loaded into MyLYRASIS<https://www.lyrasis.org/_forms/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=/_layouts/Authenticate.aspx?Source=/Pages/MyLYRASIS.aspx> and will be ready for your review on Monday 4/28. Renewal pricing will not be added to SharePoint. I will send instructions on Monday for using MyLYRASIS.

If you have requested pricing for potential new subscriptions it will be posted to SharePoint<http://extra.lyrasis.org/sites/groups/mdl_usmai/default.aspx>.

If your institution has subscriptions that renew in January an estimate has been added to SharePoint. As in the past, January estimates are for planning purposes and are based on a 10% increase over current pricing.

Thanks as always for your patience during this process. Please contact clpsupport at lyrasis.org<mailto:clpsupport at lyrasis.org> or call me at 800.999.8558 x2903 with questions.
