About the Jisc scheme

Jisc are working with publishers such as Taylor & Francis in a community-centred purchasing scheme; in summary, the more products that are purchased, the lower the cost for those participating.  

Taylor & Francis are participating in this scheme from November 2019 - July 2020 and guarantees a minimum saving of 20% off the list price of all digital primary source collections, with the potential to expand to beyond 30% depending on uptake.

What are the benefits? 

Limited library budgets can often make the purchasing of archival products difficult compared to more traditional resources such as books, eBooks and journals.  However, this scheme helps librarians reduce the cost of these resources through group purchasing, achieving more for less.  This transparent approach gives members the freedom to compare the products on offer and reduce their spend.
