Abstract

The fiscal year (FY 21) will be the final year of the contract for the State Library’s Online Resources Package for Iowa libraries, which includes Gale databases, Credo, and Transparent Language (a cost-share between the State Library and Iowa public and academic libraries which have opted to participate). In addition, FY 21 will be the final year of contracts for OCLC FirstSearch, Gale’s Opposing Viewpoints, H.W. Wilson Core Collections (via EBSCO), and Foundation Directory Online, which are paid for entirely by the State Library. Robust usage of these resources has been an ongoing challenge, and we feel that it is time to explore other options for products or services that could provide a better return on investment for the State Library and Iowa libraries.
