I would like to ask for your assistance. I need to know if any academic libraries with fashion programs belong to a consortium that provides discount pricing for online subscription-based fashion resources (trend forecasting databases, fashion trade journals, scholarly fashion resources, etc.), OR that might be interested in arranging with vendors for discounted pricing for such resources. (A URL to the consortium’s “Home” or “About” page would be greatly appreciated.)
You may also respond if your library is experiencing funding shortages that compromise your ability to subscribe to all the digital fashion resources your students need.
Kindly respond here, or directly to me. Absolutely any information your can offer will be appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
