ProQuest, part of Cambridge Information Group, US, has announced that it is extending its freeze on Continuing Service Fees, ongoing product support and access fees for perpetual archive agreements, through 2011. In addition, ProQuest is offering discounts on Continuing Service Fees to libraries that make new purchases within a product family.
Libraries are facing tremendous challenges to meet the booming use of their services. To better support their budgeting process, the company has announced that there will be no increases to its Continuing Service Fees through 2011. This fee supports 24/7 access to the content, search and browse technology, storage and hosting costs, authentication and usage reporting, technical support, access to technology developments and interface developments as they happen, as well as new data for designated products.
To further support those who make new perpetual archive license purchases, ProQuest is offering a discount programme that rewards new purchases within a product family. This programme is available for libraries having a minimum of three perpetual archive licenses and that are adding one or more new titles, with discounts starting at 25 percent.
