2002 Proposal

We would like to arrange a group purchase for the CAUL members.  Currently, we have two clients that are members and only need a total of 5 to offer a 15% discount.  If 20 or more libraries participate, we offer a 25% discount. Here is a link that explains in a little more detail the discounts that we offer.

The process for setting up and facilitating a group purchase with Serials Solutions is fairly simple.  ....We have a form called a Request for Quote that members fill out to determine what their exact price will be prior to committing.  There is no obligation if this is filled out.  It's mostly a decision making tool.  [Interested institutions should complete and submit the form online.  In the field "how did you know about SS" include the CAUL email address.]
