Shared access for Scotland

SHEDL operates to permit the joint licensing of publisher resources. We favour entire publisher bundles for all members of SHEDL, with each institution making an appropriate contribution to the contracts. Currently we hold about 12 licensing contracts, providing members of the Scottish universities and institutes with access to over 3000 journals and 60,000 eBooks.
