Trials Available for Proposed Statewide Electronic Resources!

Attention libraries and schools in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota!

The electronic resources listed here were submitted in response to the Request for Proposals (RFP) issued by the University of Minnesota on behalf of Minitex for licensing statewide access to eresources for Minnesota (i.e., ELM), North Dakota, and South Dakota. Although trial access to these e-resources will be available through at least April 10, 2014, the Minitex Electronic Information Resources (MEIR) Task Force needs your feedback no later than April 2.

Information about trial access, names of products, and links to vendor/product information are available. A link to our feedback form can be found at the bottom of each vendor section.

School media centers and libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota may open this trial access to users.

As per the guidelines of the RFP, Minitex staff and/or MEIR Task Force members cannot answer questions or discuss products/vendors under consideration. While vendors may have submitted e-resource “packages” for consideration, please be aware that contracts may be awarded for individual products or for complete packages as offered.

Your feedback is important, so please complete an evaluation form for each of the e-resources you examine during the trial period. The MEIR Task Force will consider your feedback during the evaluation process on April 7-9, 2014.

Your participation will impact the selection of statewide e-resources.

Thank you for contribution to this important process!
