Dear VALE Members,
I know everyone is eagerly awaiting the VALE FY10 database renewal packets but there have been unusual delays this year, in large part due to continuing negotiations to obtain flat renewal pricing or to minimize increases.
State funding of Academic Search Premier remains unknown at this time but it is our understanding that support for it remains a high priority of the State Library. We do not expect to have more information until July after the State Legislature has passed the budget.
We hope to send them by Wednesday 4/29 or Thursday 4/30 at the latest. Please note, they will be sent as pdf attachements to the the Directors’ listserv and an announcement will be posted to the VALE list when they have been sent.
Thank you, Judy
