Subject: Washington Post Online Offer to CRL + Friends/Family

Dear CRL Friends:  We're delighted to let you know that CRL has signed an 
agreement with The Washington Post (TWP) for an Educational Site license 
arrangement that includes CRL + Friends/Family.  Insofar as possible, we're 
following the same workflow as we've been doing for The New York Times - in 
brief (and explained in more detail in attached documents):

(1) Consortia share the offer details with their member libraries.  (2) When a 
member library is interested, the Consortium contacts CRL for a quote, which we 
will request and return to you.  (3) Members can start a subscription on the 
1st and 15th of any month with 10 business days' notice, and they may choose 
Calendar or Fiscal Year renewal basis.  (4) When a library wishes to start an 
order, you'll return two (2) items to CRL:  (a) Consortium Agreement signed by 
you, and (b) Purchase Order form signed by your member.  (5)  Francis Alba 
handles quotes for CRL members; I do so for Friends + Family.  Francis handles 
invoicing and renewals.

Please know that the educational space is a brand new venture for TWP, and 
various process and policy issues may need to be worked out as we move forward. 
 For example, we don't have a good sense yet of what the price quotes (based on 
student FTE) will look like -- and will have a better handle on pricing as we 
move forward.  We'll attempt to get answers as quickly as possible; bear with 

I'm attaching here the four relevant documents.  They'll also be permanently 
available at the CRL Friends +Family CRL web site 
(http://workspace.crl.edu/display/FandF).  We need to send you the individual 
logins for this private URL, so expect those in a few days.

1.  The TWP Consortium Agreement, which you'll submit each time one of your 
member libraries wishes to order TWP.  CRL will retain this form.

2.  TWP Sample Purchase order form, which you'll include with each Consortium 
Agreement that you submit.  There are two options (full Site License, or Group 
License, wherein selected subscribers are individually identified).  CRL will 
forward the Order to TWP and keep a copy.

3.  Agreement between CRL and TWP.

4.  TWP Offer Details.

Also please find at CRL's eDesiderata site a descriptive overview of the online 
TWP.  This overview will be of value to you and for sharing with your member 


We look forward to working with you on this brand new venture.
Ann Okerson / CRL
