Pricing models

The NSLA Consortium’s preferred pricing model is one based on either the number of concurrent users or on site licences, rather than population based.  See the Consortium’s Statement of Principles Guiding Licence Negotiation. There are a number of different pricing models that are used by vendors when dealing with the Consortium. Our preferred model is based on a band structure where each member is classified based on an understanding of members’ budgets and the nature/type of library (e.g. research focus). This structure recognises the differences in the libraries and charges accordingly. Using the band structure below a vendor will price their product for the Consortium.

Band 1 – SLNSW, SLV and NLA

Band 2 – SLWA, SLQ

Band 3 – SLT, SLSA

Band 4 – ACT, NT
