CDL Letter to Vendors-Economic Challenges Face UC Libraries


California Digital Libraries and the UC Collection Development Committee, with endorsement from University Librarians, have jointly drafted an Open Letter to Licensed Content Vendors to advise content vendors with whom we conduct business of the serious economic challenges facing the University of California Libraries.

The letter asks vendors to work with us on creative solutions to preserve the greatest amount of content possible to meet the information needs of the University of California's students, faculty and researchers.  A copy of the letter has been mailed to major vendors and made available to Resource Liaisons to share with vendors at conferences and other venues. The letter received some national publicity via an article in the LJ Academic Newswire on Thursday, May 28, 2009.

Please contact Ivy Anderson if you have questions or comments.
