Max Planck Digital Library (Max Planck Society)

As a central service unit within the Max Planck Society, one of the responsibilities of the MPDL is to negotiate and manage society-wide license agreements for electronic information resources. As one legal entity the Max Planck Society is not a consortium in the general sense, however, due to its many institutes it has a consortium-like structure.
