Vendor Discounts

IHLS is dedicated to working with library vendors to obtain services that benefit all types of libraries who are a member of an Illinois library system. IHLS, SHARE, and ILLINET* members may all benefit from these services:

 

  • Group Purchases** are negotiated and managed by IHLS, and participation is available for Illinois libraries who are part of a library system.
  • E-Resource Trials may be offered by vendors as a general promotional tool, or arranged by IHLS in connection with a prospective group purchase.
  • Vendor Discounts are offers that companies have made available to IHLS libraries. Information about vendor discount offers is provided for convenience; we do not negotiate the pricing on vendor discounts.

 

*some offers may not be available to all ILLINET members
**some group purchases are available only to SHARE members, due to the nature of the integration between the resource and Polaris (such as the Cloud Library).
