Rollout of EPIC subscription options for 2018-2019

3 November 2017

This is to let you know that I am in the process of rolling out the subscription options for EPIC member libraries for the 2018-2019 EPIC subscription year (beginning 1 April 2018).

Go to: Annual EPIC subscription confirmation process in the EPIC subscription guide for a full outline of the annual EPIC subscription confirmation process.

As contract renewal agreements for 2018-2019 are completed with each EPIC vendor, I will be adding their subscription options for EPIC member libraries to view through the Members Only section of the EPIC website.

To find out which vendors' subscription pricing options have already been added, go to the EPIC home page and check the EPIC Vendors list.

To access the subscription options for your sector:

  • Go to the EPIC website and login under Members Only with your EPIC member logins (to request a login email epic@epic.org.nz)
  • In the are titled EPIC subscription guide & options there are links to subscription option pages for each sector. Click on the applicable link for your sector. These pages will provide you with a list of EPIC vendors, along with the subscription options that they are offering through EPIC for your sector.
  • Subscription pricing options can be accessed via the orange subscription pricing options links (if you have logged in under Members Only with your EPIC members logins) on these pages.

If you are interested in trialling any of the subscription options available through EPIC, please contact the vendor directly. Vendor contact details can be found at the bottom of each Vendor's subscription pricing option page for your sector.

More subscription options will be added as they are confirmed, so please keep a look out for them...

In the meantime, here are some of the brand new options that have already been added:

As I mentioned, there will be more to come over the next few months...
