Are you a vendor interested in working with MCLS?

We believe partnering with vendors offers advantages not just to our members, but to vendors and MCLS as well. Working with MCLS allows you to broaden your reach and impact, simplify purchasing, and leverage the MCLS reputation for trusted resources and services.

MCLS eLicensing and Collection Resources works with over 600 member libraries and organizations including Academic, K-12, Public, Medical, and Special libraries primarily in Indiana and Michigan and nonmember purchasers from across the country and around the globe. We are a non-profit library collaborative, that is member-owned and governed. Guided by the MCLS mission and values, we work closely with our members to understand their needs, users, and the constraints they work under to select and purchase through MCLS. We aim to save members time and money by managing the purchasing cycle, from quotes, trials, license terms, and invoicing by working with vendors to negotiate reduced pricing on products and services.

How Partnering with MCLS works:

MCLS has partnerships with all types of vendors, including those that offer electronic databases, eBooks, journals, library supplies and products, and software. MCLS acts as a single point of contact for both vendor and member.
