Through this partnership, over 760 WALDO member libraries will be able to access authoritative blog content and insights from some of the most credentialed scholars in leading disciplines like economics, finance, medicine, and the sciences.”
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2015
ACI Information Group’s research database, the ACI Scholarly Blog Index, is now available to the Westchester Academic Library Directors Organization’s (WALDO) member academic libraries. Through a reseller partnership, WALDO will provide favorable pricing and contract terms, subscription fulfillment, and IP address management to member libraries who subscribe to the ACI Scholarly Blog Index.
“Adding the ACI Scholarly Blog Index to WALDO is a natural fit,” explains ACI Information Group President Larry Schwartz. “Through this partnership, over 760 WALDO member libraries will be able to access authoritative blog content and insights from some of the most credentialed scholars in leading disciplines like economics, finance, medicine, and the sciences.”
As a non-profit membership organization, WALDO supports the procurement and administration of electronic information services for libraries through favorable pricing and contract terms. Academic researchers who access the ACI Scholarly Blog Index through WALDO member libraries can read the full text, review each author’s credentials and social media connections, appropriately cite sources, and have access to bookmarking workflow tools.
“When we put together this partnership, it was very important to both ACI and WALDO to get this timely and often hard to find scholarly content into the hands of people who need it during their own research processes,” says Schwartz. “Together, we developed a reseller program that is a true win for ACI, WALDO, its member libraries, and end user researchers. The goal for everyone involved was to get the best content into academic researchers’ hands, and we’ve achieved that through this new partnership.”
