Year-End Promotion from McGraw-Hill

(Via Toya Moore, McGraw-Hill Regional Account Manager for Midwest—Illinois, Indiana, Michigan)

toya.moore@mheducation.com

McGraw-Hill Medical is please to announce the following 2015 year end promotions:

Bolt On Bundle where customers would receive 30% discount if customers buy all 3 of Access Medicine Bolt-Ons ( Access Medicine Neurology Collection Access Medicine OB GYN Collection Case Files Collection )

Pick   

Pick One Promotion

TERMS OF PICK ONE PROMOTION

In order for a customer to be eligible for a “Pick One” product they must purchase a new product (not just renew an existing one) of equal or greater value, before December 15, 2015.  For example a customer purchasing Access Medicine before December 15, 2015 can choose any product with an equal or lower price to add to their subscription for one year at no additional cost.  At time of renewal they must pay to renew the “Pick One” product or lose access to it.  Access Medicine and Access Pharmacy are excluded as available “Pick One” products.  Access Medicine and Access Pharmacy can be the new product purchased that makes the customer eligible for the promotion but those two products are not eligible to be given away for one free year.

Multi-year Pre-paid Promotion

Here is how it works:  The standard renewal price for a site license subscription is 6.5%.   But with the pre-paid/multi-year promotion, customers have a chance to take advantage of a lower renewal rate by paying for multiple years up front.

For example, let’s say a customer paid $10,000 this year (on 1/1/2015). For their upcoming renewal (1/1/2016), their renewal price will be $10,650. In 2017, the renewal rate would be $11,342.25 and in 2018 the rate would be $12,079.50. However, if customers pay for two years upfront, we can lower the renewal rate to 3.25%.  Or if they pay for three years up front, we can lower the renewal rate to 1.50%.    So in a 3-year scenario, customers would pay a total of $30,450.00, instead of a total of $33,379 spread over 3 years….a savings of $2,929.00.

Will you please let me know whether or not you are interested in taking advantage of any of these promotions?

Thank you and I look forward to your response.

Oktoberfest 2015 for HSLI Members from Rittenhouse & The R2 Library

Oktoberfest 2015

Patron Driven Acquisition from the R2 Digital Library is a collection development tool that enables libraries to evaluate patron usage data at the resource level with no automatic or required purchases. With
an intuitive workflow for administrators and easy integration into the user experience, Patron Driven Acquisition on the R2 Digital Library is a valuable service to ensure a library purchases the health sciences resources of most interest to their patrons.

Patron Driven Acquisition can be integrated into any active collection or used to establish an R2 Digital Library account.

R2 Digital Library PDA Overview

Patron Driven Acquisition on the R2 Digital Library is designed to meet any institution’s collection development needs:

•    Any resource that has not been purchased or previously made available via PDA can be included
•    There is no pre-set R2 Digital Library PDA collection: add resources title by title or in groups by using the R2 Digital Library filtering tools (DCT, category, discipline, etc.)
•    Once a resource has been added to an R2 Digital Library PDA collection, it appears as an active resource to an institution’s users and full text access is available to them
•    A resource’s full text can be accessed twice by end users for all PDA titles
•    Upon the third access (or trigger event), the resource moves to the shopping cart and access reverts to Table of Contents access
•    Once the trigger event  occurs, a PDA resource will remain in the R2 Digital Library shopping cart for 30 days – the R2 Digital Library PDA service does not auto-purchase resources, and all acquisition decisions are made at the discretion of the library
•    If the PDA resource is not purchased within the 30-day period, it will be removed from the shopping cart and will no longer available as a PDA resource
•    A PDA history report is available and reflects an institution’s PDA activity

PDA on the R2 Digital Library gives you complete control of your collection and never auto-purchases resources.

 

Getting Started with PDA on the R2 Digital Library

Activate your PDA collection by logging in to R2Library.com with your administrator credentials and selecting the “Add to My PDA Collection” button next to any R2 Digital Library resource not currently within your collection.

If you do not have an active R2 Digital Library account, please contact your Rittenhouse Sales Representative to begin a free 30-day trial. Once on trial, you can easily activate your R2 Digital Library PDA collection by selecting the “Add to My PDA Collection” button on any active resource.
