Gale Package

Last fall (2016) CLiC sent out a Request for Proposal. Many vendors responded with a number of products and packages. After CLiC reviewed the proposals, two task forces were assembled representing K-12 schools and public libraries across the state. CLiC staff also reached out directly to librarians at community colleges and four-year academic institutions for input and perspective on their e-resource needs. LIBRARIANS LIKE YOU took time out of their busy schedules to review resources from different vendors and provide invaluable feedback about what patrons and students across Colorado really care about.

What did we hear?

  • Libraries tell us they want options for the databases they license through CLiC.
  • Libraries want a diverse selection of electronic resources.

You asked, and we delivered. CLiC is excited to announce its new partnership with Gale/Cengage! In our continuing drive to bring great products to libraries at phenomenal discounts, we’ve assembled packages of Gale databases geared for schools, public libraries, community colleges and four-year academic institutions.

How do you order? Talk to us about your options then we will send you an individualized quote. With our new ordering system we will send you an email where you can easily review exactly what you want and even pay immediately by credit card should you so choose.
