Here's the basics: 1. Need to spend $2.9M by Dec 15, 2020 to unlock the additional content 1. Expenditures to date: $1.6 M by these libraries: * Duke University * Emory University * Florida State University * Tulane University * University of Georgia * University of Kentucky * University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill * University of North Carolina at Charlotte * University of North Carolina at Greensboro * University of Virginia 1. Currently, the following ASERL libraries are considering purchases that would total an additional $600K toward the goal: * East Carolina University * Georgia Institute of Technology * University of Mississippi * University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill * University of Tennessee - Knoxville * Vanderbilt University 1. The following ASERL libraries have not yet purchased AMD content under this offer: * Auburn University * Clemson University * Florida International University * George Mason University * Georgia State University * Johns Hopkins University * Louisiana State University * Mississippi State University * North Carolina State University * University of Alabama * University of Alabama at Birmingham * University of Central Florida * University of Florida * University of Louisville * University of Memphis * University of Miami * University of South Carolina * University of South Florida * Virginia Commonwealth University * Virginia Tech * Wake Forest University * William & Mary 1. The question at hand: Is the ASERL group able to cobble together the purchases needed to reach the goal? I realize this year presents budgetary difficulties & other uncertainties. But if we can reach the goal, it would be a significant windfall -- a trove of 93 AMD products valued at more than $1M licensed in perpetuity to every ASERL library. See https://www.amdigital.co.uk/aserl for the full details. If you'd like to get pricing quotes in advance of December 3, please contact Alicia Sell at Alicias [at] amedu.com<mailto:Alicias [at] amedu.com> 1.
