Libraries Connected has been funded by Arts Council England (ACE) to deliver an eLicensing project which aims to increase affordability and availability of digital content to public library services. We are now seeking an evaluation partner for the project.
The project will examine new and existing eLicensing business models. Objectives include improving choice for eBorrowers and improving data flow about eBook lending in libraries. A six-month pilot will commence in January 2024 with a set of libraries, publishers and aggregators testing a range of new models for eLending in public libraries.
Alongside the project, Libraries Connected is commissioning a survey of eBorrowers. The successful evaluation partner will deliver the survey and drive completion via active promotion. A full list of requirements can be found in the full Invitation to Tender document, available as a PDF or as a webpage.
Proposals should be emailed to email@example.com by 12 noon on 9 October.
