Please find below resource(s) available for Renewal
Renewal pricing for Project MUSE is now available. The early deadline is needed to meet the vendor's renewal deadline.
Last year, notice was circulated that 2016 would see a change in the pricing model. However, the vendor has delayed the changes to the pricing model for at least one more year. In the meantime, all subscribers are being kept in their current placements, meaning they will see just basic annual price increases for their chosen collection(s).
From the vendor: In recognition of ongoing pressures on library budgets and the global economy, we have once again moderated our price increases to the lowest possible levels while still allowing for the growth of content on MUSE and necessary development and support of the platform to ensure we continue to meet industry standards and customer expectations. With over 600 high-quality scholarly journals now available on our platform, and the addition since 2012 of more than 35,000 university and scholarly press books, MUSE has effectively the same staffing levels as we did five years ago, and continues to return the vast majority of our revenue (over 75%) to our participating not-for-profit publishers, allowing them to remain viable and independent.
For 2016, MUSE’s Premium Collection will see a 5% increase, with the other five MUSE journal collection price increases at 3% or less.
This is a Consortia Canada offering; TAL is the lead.
MUSE is pleased to announce that to date 9 new journals have been confirmed to join our collections in 2016, and we expect that number to double once all new additions are under contract. The new titles grow our holdings across many core MUSE subject areas, including literature, history, philosophy, and international relations. A list of all new journals confirmed to date, along with other collection content updates, may be found at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/upcoming.html.
MUSE also continues to expand our archival content holdings. Over 150 journals titles now offer complete runs, from the first volume and issue, on the MUSE platform. All archival content is immediately available to current subscribers to applicable titles at no additional charge. A full list of journals with complete runs in MUSE is at http://muse.jhu.edu/about/order/back_issues.html.
MUSE routinely makes available new materials that libraries may download or order at no charge for use in sharing information with their user populations. Subscribing libraries are encouraged to bookmark and visit often our “For Librarians” page (http://muse.jhu.edu/about/librarians/index.html) to view newly available resources, access tools such as usage statistics and holdings downloads, sign up for our e-newsletter, and submit requests for free instructional and support materials.
