IGI Global exhibits at ACRL to discuss how to recast the narrative in the higher education landscape

IGI Global Attended the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Cleveland, Ohio

As an international academic publisher, IGI Global attends conferences all throughout the year to reaffirm its presence with consortium, librarians, and scholars across the globe. Earlier this month, IGI Global attended the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, from April 10-13, 2019. Mr. Abdoul Amadou, Sales Coordinator, represented IGI Global to showcase to librarians our complete, simple, and transparent pricing on the IGI Global InfoSci®-Databases, including the InfoSci-Books (4,500+ e-books) and InfoSci-Journals (185+ e-journals) as well as how IGI Global is meeting the call for Open Access (OA) publishing well in advance of Plan S.

Mindful of budgetary constraints and the demand for new research acquisition models by librarians, IGI Global launched the OA Fee Waiver (Offset Model) Initiative, which will maximize libraries investment in content by offering simple and transparant pricing on our InfoSci-Books and InfoSci®-Journals databases, both of which provide instant access to the highest quality research across 350+ topics in 11 core subject areas. Additionally, this initiative provides institutions with an alternative source of OA funding for their faculty patrons as:

    When a library invests in IGI Global's InfoSci-Books or InfoSci-Journals databases, IGI Global will match the library’s investment with a fund of equal value to go toward subsidizing the OA article processing charges (APCs) for their students, faculty, and staff at that institution when their work is submitted and accepted under OA into an IGI Global journal.***

In addition to providing librarians with information on IGI Global’s affordable, direct access to the timeliest, high-quality research, Mr. Amadou was also able to discuss and analyze library holdings to see if they were eligible for IGI Global’s Credit Program.

This credit program takes into consideration a library’s past investment in IGI Global’s individual publications and gives them credit towards purchasing or subscribing to InfoSci-Books and/or InfoSci-Journals databases. Moreover, IGI Global is taking it a step further by allowing institutions to process their payments in two or three installments, enabling librarians to strategically place the spending within their budgets.
