Jisc and Adam Matthew Connect to Make Digital Primary Sources More Accessible for UK Higher Education
UK Higher Education institutions are now able to benefit from a group purchasing pilot with Jisc which sees multiple Adam Matthew digital research and teaching collections made available to purchase at an exceptional discount level.
Aimed at supporting Higher Education institutions with a coordinated approach to acquiring digital primary source collections, the group purchasing pilot also addresses budget constraints by leveraging institutionsâ€™ collective purchasing power.
Adam Matthew aims to inspire students and enable teaching through the digitisation of unique primary sources. The UK academic community can now select from six different collections within the scheme which cover themes of literature, society, and performance, and the history of discovery and innovation.
Between March-mid-July 2017 university libraries will be able to pledge their interest in any of these collections with the principle of â€śthe more products bought collectively, the greater the savingâ€ť.
