ASERL Friends:

As some of you have heard already, this week ASERL secured a handshake 
agreement with the leaders of the Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ) to 
provide any ASERL library wishing to support DOAJ with 30% discounts off their 
standard fees.

You may have seen an announcement from BTAA/DOAJ recently - the ASERL agreement 
is the same.  There are also several identical offers under development in 
state consortia in our region.  ASERL libraries wishing to support DOAJ can 
avail themselves of whichever offer is most convenient for them.  There is no 
"more participants = bigger discounts" aspect to this arrangement, so feel free 
to choose whichever is easiest.

The pricing is slightly complex - two tiers of support, discounts if you pay 
for three years all at once, that sort of thing.  We will offer a webinar on 
March 9 for our members to review the services provided by DOAJ, their funding 
structure, and the options for library support for their work.  See below for 
more info on the webinar.


"Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ): An Overview for ASERL Libraries"

March 9, 2021 at 11am EST / 10am Central

An official announcement is in the works - please stay tuned for that.

We hope this is useful to you.  Please let me know any questions.  Thanks.
