We are pleased to inform you that the new Library Resources Framework Agreement was launched on 9 August 2016 and is now ready for you to use.

The framework has been split into 4 lots and will run until 8 August 2019 with a possible 1 year extension until 8 August 2020. Within the re-tender we included an additional lot for Library Discovery Services which we hope members will utilise.

The full supplier list is available on our website along with a downloadable User Guide. Due to the range and nature of goods that will be supplied under this framework it was difficult to list the exact requirement and therefore discount was considered the most important factor of the award assessment criteria. The various discount models offered by suppliers for each lot they were awarded to can be found on the individual supplier web pages.

The Contract Manager for this framework is Keeley Blackburn who will be happy to help out with any detailed guidance should you require, [email protected].
