The Illinois State Library continues to work with vendors to negotiate the best prices possible for electronic resource services for Illinois libraries. The Illinois State Library will continue to provide FirstSearch for all ILLINET member libraries. The State Library will also subsidize the cost of NoveList and NoveList K-8. Libraries are urged to continue reviewing the ISL web site, ISL-Announce, and ISL-E-Sharing for information regarding additional brokered products. These additional offerings for best per library consortial pricing will be rolled out over the next two months, and the State Library anticipates offering a number of products as in past years. The products will be priced by library and can be purchased directly from the vendors. Consortia or ad hoc groups committed to a large group purchase will need to contact the Illinois State Library for more information. Find out more about E-RICH offerings for fiscal year 2006 by logging on to the ISL web site at: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/library/what_we_do/erich.html. Questions regarding the Illinois State Library's E-RICH electronic resource services should be directed to Patricia Norris at firstname.lastname@example.org or 217-524-5867.
