Hear how IGI Global's Library Account Program is helping libraries and institutions continue to acquire the timeliest research without limitations.

How Your Library Can Obtain the Best Research Without Breaking the Budget

By Anne Long on Apr 18, 2019
With the recent shifts of university funding, librarians are now faced with the reality of shrinking budgets, limited staffing, as well as an increased pressure to maintain their institution’s research standards to uphold their accreditation and university’s course demands. Due to these factors, librarians are now searching for alternative avenues and platforms to ensure that they are maximizing their budget while providing their institution with the latest resources.

As librarians are being faced with limited means of acquisition, IGI Global ensures that librarians are able to make the most economical decisions without sacrificing the quality of their acquired content through IGI Global’s Library Account Program. This program provides librarians worldwide with the opportunity to receive a 25% discount on IGI Global’s expanding portfolio of 4,500+ reference books, 185+ scholarly journals, and the award-winning InfoSci®-Databases (including InfoSci-Books and InfoSci-Journals).

As noted through one of IGI Global’s Library Account members, an institution was able to save over US$ 32,000 on over 50 of IGI Global reference books. Faculty members of this institution are able to access these reference books, which span across 350+ topics in 11 core subject areas (including business, computer science, education, science and engineering, social sciences, and more) and have been contributed by industry-leading scholars. The publications have also been noted as critical resources for the variety of courses, research, and programs that the institution offers.

Through listening to and meeting librarians’ concerns, IGI Global’s Library Account Program is the best offer for obtaining single titles and full collections of timely, peer-reviewed research. Instead of purchasing through aggregators and paying full list price on publications, Library Account holders can enjoy the simple and transparent pricing, unlimited simultaneous users, and various savings throughout the year.

As an international academic publisher for over 30 years, IGI Global has collaborated with thousands of librarians globally to assist them in providing peer-reviewed resources and services to their patrons. Through growing relationships with the librarian community, along with our belief that all research, no matter how unrecognized, contributes significantly to the advancement of knowledge, we created this program to provide IGI Global’s research at a fraction of the list price as well as provide benefits that have been requested by librarians worldwide.

Benefits of IGI Global’s Library Account Program:

  • A 25% discount on all purchases (including single book and journal titles and the award-winning InfoSci-Books and InfoSci-Journals databases) made directly through the IGI Global Online Bookstore.
  • Exclusive discounts, offers, and giveaways on IGI Global products throughout the year.
  • Pay now or later with credit card and invoicing options.
  • Get free COUNTER 5 reports and MARC records through your account.

    “We created IGI Global’s Library Account Program to ensure that librarians are able to access quality content without sacrificing their budgets,” stated Mr. Nick Newcomer, Director of Marketing. “As many librarians are looking for alternative ways to acquire content, IGI Global provides a high level of flexibility and transparency which has led many influential leaders within the library community to collaborate with us through single title purchasing, collections acquisitions, as well as on a larger scale through consortium offerings.”

Although IGI Global’s content is often available at a discount on retail websites including Amazon and eBay, these sellers of this content are often in direct violation of copyrights and pirating IGI Global content. Through ordering directly through IGI Global’s Library Account Program and the Online Bookstore, librarians can ensure that they are receiving the lowest possible price without supporting illegal activities or unethical publishing practices.
