Final Chance to join BCR's
netLibrary Shared Collection

By Ellen Fox

BCR's netLibrary Shared Collection of 4,373 e-books will be closing to new participants as of June 15. We invite you to join in this extraordinary resource-sharing project before it closes. The Shared Collection provides your library with perpetual access to netLibrary e-books at a small fraction of the full cost of the books.

The Shared Collection includes the entire collection of 578 Choice Outstanding Academic Titles currently held by netLibrary. Although a wide variety of subjects is covered by the 4,373 titles in the BCR Shared Collection, our collection development has emphasized Business and Economics, Medicine, Computers and Technology and History.

Access is perpetual, and the access fees are included in your cost. You pay only once; this is not a subscription. Pricing is per FTE:

   0 through 2,500 FTE       $2,700
   2,501 through 5,000 FTE       $4,500
   5,001 through 10,000 FTE       $7,200
   10,000 through 20,000 FTE       $13,500
   20,000+ FTE    $18,000

For more information, or to order, use BCR's web site: www.bcr.org/~randd/netlib.html

MARC records are available for the collection from OCLC as a WorldCat Collection Set. For more information on the WorldCat Collection Set for the BCR netLibrary Shared Collection, go to: www.bcr.org/~shoffhin/2000/december/netlib.html

The full title list of the 4,373 e-books in the Shared Collection is available in Excel format at www.bcr.org/~randd/nLtotal041301.xls.

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity. For more information, contact Ellen Fox ([email protected]) or Jim Hensinger ([email protected]) at BCR.
