Group Discounts

The LILRC Group Purchasing Program (GPP) offers substantial discounts to electronic databases.  GPP is available to all academic, public, special and schools libraries either as a member or non-member of LILRC.  While LILRC is offering these subscription services at a significant discount, a small administrative eligibility fee is added to partially offset our costs.  Non-member libraries pay an additional surcharge for all services.

Currently, LILRC offers access to the following electronic content, product and services:
