Hershey, PA, January 31, 2018—IGI Global, a leading international academic publisher, is pleased to announce that they will be unveiling a special price for their award-winning InfoSci®-Journals database and a new exclusive Librarian Account Program through IGI Global’s Online Bookstore at their booth #2122 at the upcoming ALA Midwinter Meeting on February 9-13 in Denver, Colorado.

IGI Global is now offering their award-winning InfoSci®-Journals database as low as $4,950 USD to new customers.

"Recently, the decision was made to drastically decrease the annual subscription of InfoSci®-Journals to make all of the knowledge accessible to the masses. Over the past 30 years, IGI Global's firm commitment to both the academic and research communities has produced this authorative collection of 22,000 articles with over one million citation references from 175 scholarly journals," said Dr. Mehdi Khosrow-Pour, President and CEO of IGI Global.

Through this amazing value, institutions gain access to 22,000 highly-cited scholarly articles, provided by experts around the world, at the price of a few single-title subscriptions. Covering core subject areas such as Business & Management, Computer Science & Information Technology, Education, Engineering, and Social Sciences & Humanities, all journals are available in full-text PDF and XML format with no DRM, making it an invaluable resource for universities, research institutions, and libraries.

Plus, librarians who sign up for IGI Global’s new Library Account Program can receive a 25% discount on this database. The new Library Account Program allows librarians an easier way to discover and acquire IGI Global’s 4,000+ reference books, 175+ highly-cited journals, and 100+ video lectures. Through this program, librarians can create an IGI Global Library Purchasing Account and benefit from a number of discounts and benefits including:

  • Receiving an automatic 25% discount off all print & electronic titles.
  • Having flexible purchasing options including invoicing or credit card options.
  • Accessing Free COUNTER4 reports and MARC records right through your account.
  • Enjoying a streamlined ordering process including one-click shopping for fast and easy purchases.
  • Accessing the latest research up to a month before its official release date.
  • Receiving recommendations based on purchasing habits and research interests.
  • Downloading full titles or purchase on the chapter/article level.

Lindsay Wertman, Managing Director, and Nick Newcomer, Director of Marketing, will be representing IGI Global at the booth, and are excited to share with attendees how to gain these exclusive benefits.

Additionally, see on display IGI Global’s unique publications representing emerging research in subjects such as Business, Engineering, Education, and Social Science & Humanities.
