Yale University Library Inks Deal
for Oxford Digital Content

Released on July 7, 2015

New York, NY, July 7, 2015 - Oxford University Press announced it is working with Yale University Library on a pilot project to acquire new print monographs in most subjects and digital versions of monographic content where available through the Oxford Scholarship Online (OSO) platform. The aim is to ensure that members of the Yale community will now have access to new monographic content published by OUP, as well as access to 11,000 books currently available on OSO. This arrangement is the first of its kind with a single academic institution.

“We are proud to partner with Yale to ensure the acquisition of high quality, peer-reviewed content available through Oxford's University Press Scholarship Online platform," said Rebecca Seger, Senior Director of Institutional Sales for Oxford University Press. "This is our first OSO pilot with Yale, and we look forward to working together to analyze how this access results in both print and online usage of content across the Yale community. As research moves towards a digital future, this program allows Yale to sustainably manage that transition and satisfy user needs for the format of choice – print and/or digital.

“We are pleased to further teaching and research at Yale by providing the flexibility of both digital and print access to the monographic output of a leading university press,” said Daniel Dollar, Director of Collection Development at the Yale University Library. “Working with Oxford University Press and YBP Library Services aligns well with the library’s service mission to the Yale University community.”

YBP Library Services will provide the collection management, duplication control, and invoicing services for the e-books. “YBP is honored to have been selected as a partner to Yale University Library for the purchase of the Oxford Scholarship Online collection. YBP is committed to delivering the services that support the management of selection and acquisition of the OSO content,” stated Mark Kendall, Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations at YBP.
