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
participate.

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

GALILEO ProQuest Database Choices for Public Libraries (FY2009)

Following GALILEO's announcement to all library participants and institutions that they will have the opportunity to choose among three ProQuest database packages for FY09, GPLS is pleased to follow-up with the Public Library community. These choices are being offered to you as part of the package that is paid for with state funds for public library databases. As many of you know, public libraries have subscribed to a group of databases from ProQuest. These choices affect access to the ProQuest package only, and no other databases.
