The Library has worked collaboratively to successfully negotiate the Elsevier Read and Publish Agreement, our most expensive subscription. We will outline the work done by UUK/Jisc and by the Library's Elsevier Negotiations Project team, including how the Library contributed to 'Plan B' preparations within the sector and worked with other institutions to test a super-fast and affordable Inter-Library Loan mechanism. We’ll also share next steps, addressing the challenges that remain and outlining how the sector will use the Elsevier deal as a blueprint for negotiations with other publishers.
