IEEE EWNI Breakfast Briefing: UKSG 2017
Tue 11 April 2017, 07:45 – 09:00 BST
The current IEEE / IET Electronic Library (IEL) Consortium has seen great success for participating institutions in England, Wales and Northern Ireland (EWNI).
This EWNI Consortium is now in the final year of the current 3-year agreement, and as such we will be holding a breakfast briefing to present a proposal for IEL to academic institutions in the consortium to follow the current agreement.
The IEEE and its sales agent, Content Online, have been working closely to put together a Consortium proposal for IEL to academic institutions with input and feedback from a number of existing Consortium institutional members.
Featuring content from IEEE as well as the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), IEL contains almost one-third of the world's current literature in electrical engineering, communications, and computer science. Discover more about IEL
