ACM Digital Library Renewal 2019-2020
Begins:July 1, 2019
Ends:June 30, 2020
Late joins are welcome.
Any needed print subscriptions should be handled individually by the institution, who should contact ACM Member Services directly. For institutions participating in a consortia purchase of ACM's Digital Library, ACM's print packages are available at a reduced price of 25% off list price. The purchase of these print packages is available to institutions directly through ACM, and will not be administered by the consortium. Please note that this reduced pricing for print applies to any new or renewed print subscriptions ordered during the consortia purchase.
ACM's pricing model for non-US participants is based in part on usage levels. ACM has instituted an automatic system whereby usage outside of their pre-set levels generates an automatic email to the institution (and to the chief negotiator). It is important that each institution keep track of any anomalies in their usage which may be due to data mining (which is not permitted) or excessive downloading, as this has an impact on an institution's tier placement and pricing.
In a typical year, fewer than 5 such anomalies are generally reported. However, in 2015, almost 20 were reported in January and February. (These numbers refer to all ACM subscribers; there is no known history of such anomalies among BC ELN partner libraries.)
