Which libraries can join the Consortium?
In principle all institutions or libraries can participate in Consortium Luxembourg if they would like to have access to digital content. Unfortunately, we cannot accept commercial institutions as partners.
As long as your requirements stay within our technical and process framework, our services are free.
The pricing models for digital content itself vary considerably across publishers and products while costs tend to increase 2 to 4% year on year.
Partners choose between following services: licensing only or licensing and access.
Negotiations of read (access) and publish licences, Contract Management (incl. tenders), Invoicing, Vendor Contact, Helpdesk, etc.
You may be able to join existing Consortium licenses, but we can also negotiate individual licenses.
Provision of an access platform (search engine), Authentication/authorisation, User Management, Metadata Management, Usage statistics, OpenURL Resolver, Helpdesk, etc.
Access services are always designed according to your specific needs.
