HeritageQuest Online FY09 Renewal - Need Response by May 2nd

Two years ago, a core group of public library directors asked GPLS to
coordinate an affordable group subscription to HeritageQuest Online - giving
access to all public library systems through GALILEO. Each year we have
worked to lower the individual system pricing of the total HeritageQuest
group purchase. This price is now only $.008 per capita (using 2009
Household/CNI projected population) -- provided all library systems

Details on the FY09 HeritageQuest renewal are now available on a customized
GPLS Web page:

library users) has been delayed until March. Some unanticipated
technical problems surfaced during the move from beta to production
