Last month we shared an update on the WALDO/LYRASIS transition. If your library subscribed to any product through WALDO in calendar year 2020 through July 31, 2021, you are eligible to participate in the LYRASIS group licensing program at no additional charge through June 30, 2023. After that time, continued participation will require a LYRASIS membership. The CLC team will be reviewing the list of products to which our members have subscribed through WALDO as we explore possible options for providing continued discount opportunities. 

We want to hear from you! The CLC Team requests that you complete the CLC Suggestion Form if there is a resource, company, or product for which you would like to see a discount or offer.

CLC's Most Popular Offer
Still a month and a half left to participate in this Fall’s ebook offer! Members receive a 30% discount on collections in Biblical Studies, Pastoral Ministry/Missions, Leadership, and Education, or on a la carte orders of $1000 or more. A 10% discount is available for eligible Zondervan/HarperCollins titles. See the website for title lists and additional details. 

If you were interested but were unable to attend the Oct. 25 webinar with Robin Corder, here is the link to the recording.  
Last year the CLC partnered with Perlego, billed by the press as the “Spotify/Netflix for textbooks.” Perlego collaborates with leading publishers including Zondervan, IVP, Baker, Eerdmans, and many others to grant access to their content on a subscription-based model. Each user on Perlego has access to a personal library of over 1 million books and can personalize the learning experience through features such as highlights and annotations. CLC member institutions are offered a discounted rate on access to these titles for their users. We are looking ahead to renewal for next year, as volume discounts increase with greater participation. Since last year, Perlego has developed significantly, with new content, and updates including a dictionary, a timer, professor assignment capabilities, and a text coloring tool. Alberta from Perlego will be joining us at our November virtual CLC Membership Meeting for a few minutes to share a little about Perlego and the CLC partnership. If you have questions about Perlego or this CLC discount, please feel free to contact us at or reach out to Alberta.
This month we are highlighting another CLC member benefit – a discount on the R2 Digital Library from Rittenhouse. R2 Digital Library is a web-based collection of health science eBooks enabling access to multiple publishers on one platform. Institutions can purchase individual titles in the clinical areas of Nursing, Allied Health and Medicine. With our consortial discount, the annual maintenance fee, typically $1,200 is reduced to $400 annually for each participating institution. The fee will be waived in the first year for any institution making their first purchase. An existing active customer can take advantage the reduced annual maintenance fee. Rittenhouse offers a no-obligation evidence based PDA (Patron Driven Acquisition) program, which is a great option for a no-risk eBook Collection. Rittenhouse is currently running one of its 2 biannual specials, Oktoberfest, which gives a discount on selected print and digital titles. For more information or to begin a trial of R2, contact Gina Ferrigno.
In last month’s newsletter, we didn’t get the opportunity to share the full details of where we landed with the Springshare discount. We did reach the minimum of 5 libraries with a new subscription to LibGuides or LibGuides CMS. These libraries received a 15% discount. More good news – since we reached that threshold, additional CLC members who want to purchase LibGuides or  LibGuides CMS will also receive a 15% discount (as long as we continue to have at least a minimum total of 5 subscribers). New subscribers may purchase a subscription at any time and Springshare will pro-rate the purchase to the October-September renewal term. Contact Dave Ware, Springshare Regional Sales Manager, for pricing quotes.
