Announcing:
The Fall 2018 Offer is now available!

Participation is open to all medical librarians in a 20-state region:
  • NNLM/MAR
  • NNLM/SEA
  • NNLM/NER
How it Works
Group Purchasing Power, Cost-Saving and Technology-Sharing

Partnering with librarians in the MAR, SE/A and NER is something we’re very passionate about—because the GLI is comprised of librarians just like you. Group licensing is a creative solution to the escalating cost of high-quality, digital resources—and we’ve become known for leading the way, innovating, founding the first consortium of this kind in the country.

Establishing relationships with vendors, negotiating on your behalf, and leveraging group purchasing power is an extremely rewarding process. It is transforming library resources, transforming research, transforming patient care, transforming lives.

The Fall 2018 Offer includes:
  • 700+ digital resources 
  • From 12 academic publishers
  • At a cost savings of 15-70% off regular pricing

I extend a warm invitation to all librarians to consider the slate of resources we've compiled for your consideration this fall. There is no membership fee. Participation is open now through Friday, November 9, 2018.

Ordering Instructions


Deadline: Due to our online ordering system, NO EXCEPTIONS can be made regarding the Friday, November 9 deadline. Online ordering closes on that date.

Thank you for planning accordingly. We are always thankful for early orders!

Please note: If you haven't participated since last fall, you will notice upgrades to the s ystem. A training session has been record and linked to each librarians' user profile; simply log into CorsortiaManager and click "More > Materials" to access the training. Thank you for growing with us!
Special Note about Springer

Please Note: Resources from Springer will be added to the Offer in about a week. They are not currently available due to a programming glitch. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience.
In the Words of a Librarian

The thing that’s most important: The GLI eliminates the need to negotiate with vendors. And with the GLI we can get better and longer-lasting discounts. And what I like most is the renewal and invoicing process—it’s very efficient. Getting one invoice for all the resources is very easy.
