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 maililng 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.
