Regional ebooks from Kortext

HEE has funded access to a collection of titles from Kortext for each of the four regions and put in place an arrangement to provide titles to NHS library collaboratives on a credit model.

In addition HEE has funded these specialist collections for all four regions:

What are the benefits of purchasing books via Kortext?

The credit access model means that titles are available in perpetuity; you will not pay annual subscription fees.

It gives NHS Trusts in England the opportunity to build a wider collection by sharing local purchases for the benefit of all participating libraries.

How does the collaborative model work?

There are four regional ebook collaboratives: North; Midlands and East; London and KSS; South.

Library services may form sub-regional collaboratives to buy additional titles.

Books purchased for each collaborative are available to all NHS OpenAthens Organisations within the collaborative.

Credits are shared across collaboratives.

How do we buy additional titles?

An NHS Portal is available where you can check pricing and place orders https://nhs.keylinks.org/#/ .  Contact [email protected] to be set up.

If you spot that a newer edition is available for one of the HEE purchased titles for your region, please contact Helene Gorring so that this can be updated.
