Purchasing round 2024

The membership of the 14-person Focus Group has been confirmed for this year, after a few changes. We will be receiving the list of titles on offer from ProQuest and Pearson by the end of this month, and the Focus Group will spend three weeks scoring before we meet for an online discussion in the last week of March to identify a longlist. The final purchase list will depend on pricing and budget – we should be able to let members know by early May what new titles will be arriving in September, and also what will be renewed.
