Bibsam Consortium

The Bibsam consortium is administered by Kungliga biblioteket, the National Library of Sweden. The consortium has 95 participating institutions including universities, university colleges, as well as public agencies and research institutions. It manages about 50 license agreements for approximately 100 e-resource packages. These include agreements with scholarly journal publishers as well as abstract and indexing databases, reference works and e-books.

Eight representatives (library directors and a vice-chancellor as chairperson) from the participating institutions form the Bibsam Consortium Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is focusing on developing strategies and overall principles regarding negotiations, price models and content.
