Claudia from Evanced emailed me and said "What we can offer is that if we can get a minimum number of OR libraries interested in subscribing to Summer Reader, we can offer a 3-year nicely discounted price to form a sort of 'virtual consortium'." At this time the Oregon State Library and Oregon Library Association have decided not to pursue a statewide summer reading software contract (see the email below for details).

However, if you are interested in partnering with other Oregon libraries to get a deal on a contract with a summer reading software vendor, then start talking with your colleagues to find out what other libraries may be interested. Either contact libraries you already network with individually or send an email out on one of the listservs.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Learn about online summer reading program products 10/3/2012

This winter I worked with the chairs of OLA's Children Services Division (CSD) and Oregon Young Adult Network (OYAN) to explore whether or not libraries in Oregon are interested in a statewide contract for software that would enable them to put their summer reading programs online. We learned that while many Oregon libraries are interested, a significant number are not. Therefore the State Library, CSD, and OYAN have decided not to pursue a statewide contract for summer reading software.

Due to the fact that many libraries are interested in summer reading software and may be able to form a consortium to get a better price, I have scheduled a webinar with one summer reading software vendor for any of you who are interested-details below. After this webinar, interested libraries will be responsible for any next steps. If some libraries are interested in exploring a consortium, then they will have to take the lead on facilitating that effort. Libraries will also be responsible for scheduling webinars or product demos with other vendors of summer reading software.

Evanced Summer Reader webinar
October 3, 2012
2:00pm-3:00pm

This webinar will give libraries across Oregon the opportunity to get a general overview of a whole suite of products to help keep their libraries at the center of their communities.  Used by thousands of libraries, the Summer Reader, Events and Room Reserve software ensure your patrons know what's happening and are able to sign up for reading programs, events, and even request rooms online or via a mobile device.  Learn about the new products just coming into the market: Peek-a-Book Total Access provides high-end video teasers of the best of children's literature, and MarkIt is a book sale management system to truly make your book sales a solid revenue stream. This one-hour demo will touch on all these products, and give you a taste of the possibilities in your libraries.

I will email out the URL and login instructions closer to the date of the webinar.
