You’re Paying HOW Much for Free Content?

More than ever, public libraries must combat misinformation and provide timely resources to their patrons. High-quality, peer-reviewed open access articles and open educational resources (OER) help support this mission—yet most of these materials are effectively hidden behind paywalls and are expensive to access.

To learn how to bypass the paywalls and provide high-quality OA resources to your patrons for less money, join us for this 30-minute conversation with Jill Blades, Executive Account Manager for Content Solutions.

Together, we will:

  • Uncover what OA materials the traditional subscription databases include, and more importantly, what they leave out and why
  • Provide cost-effective solutions for capturing the most OA content possible
  • Learn how to make OA content easy to find and access
  • Explore how CloudSource provides patrons with research on any subject with one-click access to more than 60 million OA and OER materials—no login or authentication required

Take advantage of our free collection analysis service to uncover exactly how much your library pays for “free” content, and discover how you can expand your collection and reduce subscription costs. Register today.
