August 2019 - July 2020 Project MUSE Group EBA Program - FUNDING GOAL MET!

We are happy to report that the $20,000 goal has been met for this program! This means that participants in the program will have access to all 36,000 EBA-eligible Project MUSE titles. Thank you to all who are participating!

The group is now established, but more participants are welcome to join.

For those that are interested in participating in this program, please read all of the details below and express interest via the Project MUSE EBA LYRASIS Build-A-Group Survey<https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FY20EBAMUSE> by end of business, Friday, June 7.


Offer Summary

Content


  *   The Project MUSE book collections are particularly strong in the humanities and social sciences disciplines.
     *   Open Access titles on the MUSE website can be used to assist libraries in evaluating the functionality of books on Project MUSE. Find the open access titles here <https://about.muse.jhu.edu/muse/open-access-overview/>
  *   Publishers select books eligible for single title sale on MUSE and may change this option at any time.
  *   Over 36,000 titles, around 70% of all titles at MUSE, are eligible for EBA. A snapshot of the current content is attached to this email.
  *   An "updated-to-the-minute" Book Holdings list that indicates whether a book is available for single title sale and EBA (Column K = Yes) is available for download at https://about.muse.jhu.edu/librarians/holdings/.

Administration


  *   Once access to content is enabled, each participating library will be provided with a link to a management page that includes a dynamic title list, MARC records and KBART downloads, as well as usage statistics.
  *   Usage statistics will be provided on request for each participating library's review and evaluation.

Selection


  *   At the end of the program, libraries select the titles they wish to acquire. The number of titles a library is allowed to select is based on the amount contributed at the beginning of the program.
  *   Each library will have continuing access to all the titles it selects.
  *   If the $20,000 threshold is not met by the deadline, the program will still continue, however only a portion of the EBA-eligible titles as determined by the group will be opened up for access.


Funding Commitment

LYRASIS total group funding commitment goal: $20,000

The number of titles a library is allowed to select for continuing access at the end of the term is based on the amount contributed.

Contributions will be tiered based on the Project MUSE Tier System<https://about.muse.jhu.edu/librarians/usa-canada-pricing/>:


  *   Tier 1: Minimum $1,000 contribution (Associates Institutions)
  *   Tier 2: Minimum $2,000 contribution (Baccalaureate General and Baccalaureate/Associates Institutions)
  *   *Tier 3: Please inquire about minimum contribution (Baccalaureate Liberal Arts and Masters II Institutions)
  *   **Tier 4: Please inquire about minimum contribution (Masters I and Doctoral Research Intensive Institutions)
  *   ***Tier 5: Not eligible for this group program (Doctoral Research Extensive Institutions)

*Tier 3 and Tier 4 institutions' minimum contribution level will be based on past MUSE journal/ebook usage as well as any turn-away data.
**Not all Tier 4 institutions will be eligible to participate in the group EBA program due to larger levels of expected usage.
***Tier 5 institutions are ineligible to participate in the group EBA program due to large levels of expected usage, however they are eligible to participate in an individual EBA program

Individual EBA Programs are available
If your institution is not eligible for this group EBA program or you prefer to participate individually, Project MUSE is more than happy to work with you to design an EBA program that meets your institution's needs.
