Consortium (VHLC)

VHLC CONSORTIUM INFORMATION

The Victorian Health Libraries Consortium manages group purchases of electronic content for health libraries in Victoria.

The VHLC works with publishers to offer a variety of deals on an opt-in basis. Some deals comprise content customised to the group. Other deals comprise standard packages where consortia pricing delivers significant savings to libraries

A number of librarians volunteer to be members of the VHLC management committee. Committee members manage deals either directly with the publisher, or in conjunction with subscription agents.

In 2017 the VHLC has 29 participating libraries. 10 deals were offered, comprising 1700 e-journals and 7000 e-books.
