New Offer for TexShare/SCELC Partners! Mango Languages (Order Forms due October 23, 2012)

TexShare is pleased to announce an offer for Mango Languages through the TexShare/SCELC Partner program. Although SCELC recently renewed their annual subscription to Mango Languages, SCELC wants to make sure that TexShare members are aware of the consortial arrangement SCELC has with them. Several additional languages have recently been added to the Mango Languages portfolio, including a new Religious & Scholarly Language Collection, which will likely interest several TexShare institutions. As a result of these developments, SCELC wants to make sure that TexShare institutions have the opportunity to consider adding subscriptions. SCELC is running this promotional offer now, and note any new subscriptions will be prorated to align with SCELC’s July 1-June 30 contract term with Mango.

Note that to participate in this offer your institution will need to complete the TexShare/SCELC Partnership documentation found here: (Your institution will need to fill out this documentation once, not each time you license something through the TexShare/SCELC Partner Program.)

SCELC Surcharges

This surcharge is the same surcharge SCELC charges its current, dues-paying members, and these fees are SCELC’s primary source of operational revenue. For Mango Languages, SCELC will charge your institution 1% of your cost. In addition, SCELC adds a $50 partner transaction fee for database/ebook packages for non-SCELC members.
