Bring The Benefits of the Platform to Members

Worldwide Consortia Coverage

We work with library consortiums all over the world to bring the power and the utility of Springshare platform to member libraries. We work with our consortia partners on providing training, pricing discounts to members, and any other services we can offer to make the partnership outcomes possible.
