Hello everyone.



This is a friendly reminder that the deadline to participate in the Project MUSE Group EBA Program for the August 1, 2021 - July 31, 2022 term is Friday, June 4. The $20,000 threshold required to open up access to all 51,400 EBA-eligible book titles in the program has been surpassed. By working as a LYRASIS group, participating libraries will have access to a much larger number of book titles for a much lower cost than they would by acting alone.



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 51,400 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 M = Yes) is available for download at https://about.muse.jhu.edu/librarians/holdings/.



Administration



  *   Once access to content is enabled, each participating library can gain access to MARC records download, usage statistics, and title purchasing tools in the MUSE Library Dashboard.



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 of the titles it selects.



Funding Commitment



LYRASIS total group funding commitment goal: $20,000 (This goal has been met!)



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



  *   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.

Important Dates



  *   Deadline to commit to participate: June 4, 2021
  *   Payment due by July 31, 2021
  *   Term of program: August 1, 2021 - July 31, 2022
