The purpose of the eResources Consortium is to secure access to commercial electronic information resources for consortium members. These resources include full-text journals, local and international newspapers, ebooks and databases.
The Consortium aims to:
- simplify licensing arrangements
- improve cost benefits for member libraries
- explore opportunities for making electronic products more widely available to all Australians, regardless of where they live.
Find out more about eresources in NSLA libraries.
- First phase of a core set of eResources for all Consortium libraries implemented in February 2012.
- Negotiating access, licensing and pricing with suppliers of electronic collections.
- Determining selection criteria in evaluating new electronic collections for purchase.
