Consortia Newsletter

IGI Global values working closely with consortia worldwide as part of our commitment to sharing information science and technology research. We are excited to announce two new nationwide offerings for IGI Global e-resources this month.

IGI Global and the EPIC Consortium are partnering to bring emerging technology research to all New Zealand libraries – including university, public, government and schools. Also, IGI Global and ZBW developed a German Consortium offering for unique options for perpetually purchasing e-books and usage-based subscription for journals and videos. As IGI Global and consortia continue to work together, universities and libraries worldwide can receive unique opportunities to receive access to the cutting-edge research.

Our partnerships with consortia include educational seminars for librarians and/or authors and valuable e-resources offerings. The specialized offerings include:

InfoSci-Books and Subject Databases of e-books
  3,400+ e-books in 11 different subject areas

  166+ scholarly e-journals

And our new InfoSci-Videos Collection
  Over 100+ academic video lectures

IGI Global is committed to sharing and showcasing innovation in the information science and technology field. IGI Global is highlighting a different region monthly to feature their technology innovation and contribution to emerging technology research. This month, we are recognizing Oceania as an innovator in many areas of information science and technology. In addition, IGI Global publications continue to be recognized by prestige indices. Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters) recently indexed 22 new journals in Web of Science.
