      External Email - Use Caution

Dear MDL members,

I am writing today with an update on the upcoming MDL renewals.

I wanted to let you know that LYRASIS has made every effort to secure the lowest possible pricing for subscriptions that renew on July 1st. In our negotiations with vendors, we have communicated that a "business as usual approach" is not acceptable as our member libraries are experiencing severe budget impacts due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

After multiple rounds of negotiation, I am pleased to report the following results to date:

Renewal Increase
EBSCO (proprietary resources)
EBSCO (non-proprietary resources)
0% - 3%
Encyclopedia Britannica

As the negotiations with other vendors continue, please know that we are steadfast in our advocacy for sustainable pricing.

Kind regards,

Jennifer McGovern
LYRASIS Group Services Representative
