Digital Library Products Procurement 2018: Home

Background

Massachusetts Library System and Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium invite interested suppliers to submit proposals for two exciting new programs.  Suppliers may submit proposals for one or both programs.

  1. Digital Library Products Cooperative Purchasing Contract
  2. Emerging Online Products Innovative Offerings

The Digital Library Products procurement provides a pathway to MHEC's new L54 Digital Library Products Contract.  This offers broad exposure to libraries throughout New England.
