FYI. Our CRL colleagues have an offer for libraries to subscribe to the Washington Post, available to any ASERL member (not just CRL members). If interested, please contact Ann Okerson (see below) for a quote / next steps. Thanks. --jeb John Burger, Executive Director Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) ℅ Robert W. Woodruff Library 540 Asbury Circle, Suite 316 Atlanta, GA 30322-1006 Tel: 404-727-0137 Follow ASERL on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/Ziuz2a Find me on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ASERLJEB From: Ann Okerson <aokerson [at] gmail.com> Sent: Thursday, August 15, 2019 11:29 AM To: Ann Okerson <aokerson [at] gmail.com> 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 us! 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 libraries: https://edesiderata.crl.edu/resources/washington-post-online#crl-review We look forward to working with you on this brand new venture. Ann Okerson / CRL
