Reviewed events leading up to PNC’s decision to investigate the need for, and possibility of, establishing a PNC Purchasing Group to negotiate contracts with vendors for group access to desired resources.

WMLA agreement with OVID for access to LWW journals was based on an assessment of participants needs and desires. Cost to each participating library was based on a formula used by the Washington State Library.

Administration of the contract was very time consuming.
