Call to publishers: Jisc digital archival collections group purchasing scheme PIN notice
- 11 May 2018

Jisc is working in collaboration with publishers to make digital archival collections of primary source materials more affordable so researchers, teachers and learners can have access to a wider range of resources and libraries can achieve further efficiencies. They are currently running phase two of the Digital Archival collections group purchasing pilot from November 2017 to July 2018 with 4 publishers, to be followed by a framework agreement that will open up the buying model to a wider selection of publishers.

The group purchasing model operates on two principles: the more products collectively purchased from a publisher, the more institutions equally benefit from discounts off list prices no matter what Jisc band they belong to (for example, if a band 1 and band 7 institutions made a purchase, they would receive the same percent discount off the list price); and the purchasing model runs on a yearly basis, allowing institutions to benefit from the maximum discount reached by the end of each academic year.

Jisc will launch four digital archival collections within the next few weeks. Interested publishers can register through the recently launched PIN notice available on TED (tenders electronic daily), by the end of May 2018.

The University of Cincinnati Libraries joins HathiTrust
- 10 May 2018

The University of Cincinnati Libraries have joined HathiTrust, a partnership of major research institutions and libraries working to ensure that the cultural record is preserved and accessible long into the future by collaboratively collecting, organising, preserving, communicating and sharing the record of human knowledge. UC Libraries joins more than 130 international research libraries in HathiTrust, and is the third Ohio library to join along with The Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve University.

HathiTrust began in 2008 as a collaboration of the universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (now the Big Ten Academic Alliance) and the University of California system to establish a repository to archive and share their digitised collections. At present, the HathiTrust's Digital Library catalogue equals 16 million volumes digitised and deposited by member libraries.

As members of HathiTrust, the University of Cincinnati community will have full access to digital materials inputted by UC Libraries, as well as those items in the public domain and those for which there is permission. In addition, benefits of HathiTrust membership include digital content storage, cost-effective long-term preservation and access services for UC Libraries' digitised content.

The initial focus of the HathiTrust collaboration has been on preserving and providing access to digitised book and journal content from the partner library collections. This includes both in copyright and public domain materials digitised by Google, the Internet Archive and Microsoft, as well as through in-house initiatives. The members aim to build a comprehensive archive of published literature from around the world and to develop shared strategies for managing and developing their digital and print holdings in a collaborative way. HathiTrust members ensure the reliability and efficiency of the digital library by relying on community standards and best practices, developing policies and procedures to manage content and services at scale and by maintaining a modular, open infrastructure.

NLM partners with Adam Matthew Digital to complete Medical Services and Warfare Digitization Project
- 09 May 2018

The National Library of Medicine's History of Medicine Division recently worked with Adam Matthew Digital, a digital publisher of unique primary source collections from archives around the world, to digitise more than 12,000 pages of manuscripts from 15 collections held by the NLM.

The NLM collections join a host of others from the British Library, the Library and Archives of Canada, and the UK National Archives, among other libraries and archives, in Medical Services and Warfare, a new online resource from Adam Matthew which explores multiple perspectives on the history of injury, treatment and disease on the front lines of modern warfare.

Patrons can freely view Medical Services and Warfare at the NLM. They may also study the original NLM collections in the NLM's History of Medicine reading room.

NLM Digital Collections will eventually provide free global access to all the material now digitised for the Medical Services and Warfare project.
