Gale/Cengage Learning Academic Library Package
The Washington State Library's Statewide Database Licensing Program (SDL) brokers a group purchase from Gale | Cengage Learning for academic libraries in Washington. This page contains information about joining the group purchase and/or renewing current subscriptions.
Gale understands the difficult economic issues facing Washington libraries. For libraries that previously purchased packages through this program, Gale has announced (for the second year) a 0% increase for all subscriptions that have a renewal date on or before December 31, 2010. Renewals after that time may increase but not more than 3% annually.
There is no need for currently participating libraries to fill out a renewal form unless they wish to change package levels, or change their selections within a particular package. You will receive notification of renewal directly from Gale. To make changes to packages please contact your Gale account representative or Will Stuivenga as listed below.
For new subscribers Gale has announced a revised program that will offer libraries substantial savings on subscriptions to individual resources. This enables the library to select a custom combination of most needed resources at a significantly lower cost than previous individual purchases. If your library is considering purchasing multiple new resources your Gale sales team will be happy to work with you on package purchases.
The resources featured in this program are:
Trials of these resources are available on request by contacting your Gale account representative. Subscription periods are 12-months and orders can be placed throughout the year. Pricing information is available by contacting your Gale account representative or Will Stuivenga.
Resources not featured in this program may also be eligible for SDL discounts. Please contact your Gale account representative for details. If you have any other questions about this discounted purchase program, please contact Will Stuivenga using the information at the bottom of the page.
