ProQuest Extends Continuing Service Fee Freeze Through 2011

Apr 14, 2009

ProQuest is extending its freeze on Continuing Service Fees, ongoing product support, and access fees for perpetual archive agreements, through 2011. In addition, ProQuest is offering discounts on Continuing Service Fees to libraries that make new purchases within a product family. To better support the budgeting process, there will be no increases to ProQuest Continuing Service Fees through 2011. This fee supports 24/7 access to the content, search and browse technology, storage and hosting costs, authentication and usage reporting, technical support, access to technology developments and interface developments as they happen, as well as new data for designated products. To support those who make new perpetual archive license purchases, ProQuest is offering a discount program that rewards new purchases within a product family.  This program is available for libraries having a minimum of three perpetual archive licenses and that are adding one or more new titles, with discounts starting at 25%.
