One of two new ebook acquisition models for fiscal year 2018, a new evidenced-based program with Taylor & Francis for purchasing e-books on behalf of Orbis Cascade Alliance member libraries. Approximately 21,000 DRM-free titles are covered in this arrangement, representing humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. Taylor and Francis/CRC Press have agreed to partner with GOBI Libraries services so that program titles will appear in GOBI to aid Gobi customers in avoiding unwanted duplication.

Taylor & Francis content with publication dates from 2013 and CRC available on the combined UBX platform, excluding encyclopedias and "textbooks," are included in this model. (Note that T&F does not have either a consistent definition or complete list of textbook exclusions.) 

The year of the pilot will run through approximately June 30, 2018. The Alliance will select titles to own perpetually based on vendor usage data at the end of the period. Individual Alliance members may elect to purchase additional TFE or CRC ebook content for their own collections at a discount of 20% off the individual institutional list price after the term of the pilot through March 30, 2019. T&F title discounts should be reflected in GOBI.

Contact Taylor and Francis for more information on individual purchasing.
