Peter Lang Evidence Based Acquisition

Evidence Based Acquisition

How it works?

  •  A library pays an upfront access fee to access a collection of books for an agreed period of time. The access fee is much smaller than that to purchase the entire collection.
  • At the end of the access period, the library makes selections based on the usage; and the access fee goes towards the purchase of these titles.
  • The purchased titles will remain as part of the library’s collection in perpetuity.
  • The library may choose to continue in a second year – again under similar terms


Option 1) 12 month access to 4200 titles (English) from 17 subject areas.  Upfront price $35.000.

Option 2) 12 month access to your choice of 7 subject collections.  Upfront price $20.000

Option 3) 12 month access to 1 subject collection.  Upfront price $5.000

After 12 months the titles you select to the value of the deposit remain a permanent part of your collection
