Copyright Clearance Center Announces Partnership with Amigos Library Services

    Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a not-for-profit organization and leading provider of licensing and content solutions, has announced a partnership with Amigos Library Services, one of the largest library service networks in the nation.

    Amigos is a not-for-profit consortium of more than 800 US libraries across 22 states that provides access to the latest innovations and services, continuing education, vendor discounts, and professional advice to the library community.

    This partnership extends Amigos’ content and licensing offerings and gives its members value-added services on top of CCC’s licensing and content solutions. Amigos’ academic library members can now pay for article purchases from CCC’s Get It Now solution through their Amigos Deposit Account. In addition, academic institution members receive a discount on the service fee when they purchase CCC’s Annual Academic Copyright License through Amigos.

    Get It Now is an easy-to-implement, cost-effective, always-on service that gives library patrons instant access to unsubscribed journal content from leading publishers. The Annual Copyright License provides users with a single, multi-use license for their institution, allowing faculty, researchers and staff to share content across campus with ease.

    “We are pleased to be working with a trusted partner that has a longstanding reputation for providing value to member libraries,” said Miles McNamee, Vice President, Licensing and Business Development, CCC. “Both organizations share a common vision of creating innovative solutions for academic libraries.”

    “We’re excited to be offering CCC’s products and services like Get It Now to our member libraries,” said Gerrye McEntire, Manager, Member Discount Services, Amigos Library Services. “Amigos adds value to Get It Now through integrated billing and convenient purchasing.”

    CCC enters into partnerships with leading organizations to offer corporate, academic and publisher customers a broad set of solutions that simplify copyright compliance and access to content.
