Electronic Information Resources Working Group

Jisc Collections greatly benefits from the guidance of the Electronic Resources Working Group (EIRWG). Following the recommendations in the review of NESLi2, the terms of reference for the group has been updated.  Information about the group and membership can be found on the group's pages

As a part of the revised terms of members, each of the academic members of the group will be responsible for a constituency of libraries organised by Jisc Band.  We have set up email lists so that you can communicate directly with your constituency member.

Please sign up to join the mailing list for your EIRWG constituency member.

Jisc MediaHub - Image of the Month

With the Women's World Cup taking place in Canada, this month's image is a slice of women's footballing history. It is a screengrab from a Gaumont newsreel from 1922 and shows Dick Kerr's Ladies playing Olympique de Paris at Cardiff. They won 3-0 and were watched by 15,000 spectators.

Image credit: Gaumont. This is just one of thousands of images and videos you can find at Jisc MediaHub, part of the Jisc eCollections service.

Jisc Collections announcement for publishers concerning Open Access Key (OAK)

Published Tue June 30 2015, by Liam Earney in News releases

Between March 2013 and July 2014 Jisc Collections entered into a trial licence agreement with OAK (now Innovative Solutions for the Scholarly Research Community (ISSRC)) as part of the Jisc APC pilot project. The pilot had two strands of activity; an exploration of key issues within a gold open access environment - managed by Jisc Collections, and delivery of an online administration platform for pilot institutions. The pilot and all associated agreements terminated in July 2014 and Jisc Collections has no further contractual relationship with OAK/ISSRC.
