The HSLANJ Group Licensing Initiative's Spring Offer is now available!
Deadline to participate: April 27

Please note: 
Due to our online ordering procedures, 
no exceptions can be made regarding the April 27 deadline. 
This is nearly six weeks from today. Thank you for planning accordingly!
Update to Orders/Renewals Process:

We have migrated to the newest version of ConsortiaManager, in order to further streamline and enhance your ordering/renewing process!

The biggest change you’ll notice is the way orders are placed. You will now move your orders/renewals to a “shopping basket,” and when you’re finished, you’ll “check out.” At that point, you’ll download the order confirmation sheet for signatures. After its been signed, you will upload the confirmation sheet to complete and place your order. 
Training Sessions:

Two training sessions have been scheduled to show you how to navigate these changes. One session will be recorded and linked to your user profile for viewing later if you’re unable to attend one of the sessions. Trainings are scheduled as follows:
Tuesday, 20 March, 10:00 EDT at
Friday, 23 March, 11:00 EDT at
No registration necessary. Many thanks for "growing" with us!  

In the words of a medical librarian...
The thing that is 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.

Your advice to medical librarians considering participating?

Give it a try— you’ll see how wonderful and efficient the renewal and invoicing process is. They negotiate everything for you, find the best prices for you.
