DDC23 at a discount for NH libraries

NHAIS Services was able to arrange a bulk discount with OCLC for the soon-to-be released 23rd edition of the Dewey Decimal Classification if at least 50 copies are ordered by NH libraries by May 15, 2011.

The list price for the 4 volume DDC23 is $399.
OCLC is offering a 10% discount on copies ordered by July 1, 2011
If NHSL/NHAIS orders 50 copies we can get each copy for $319.20
If we order 250 copies we can get each copy for $299.25

We have set up an online order form through which we will collect orders until May 15, 2011. If we get orders for at least 50 copies we will place the order and have the books shipped to the NHSL for redistribution via van delivery. If not, libraries will still have time to purchase DDC23 at the 10% early order discount.

Please note that we are collecting ORDERS, not reservations. By completing the online order form you are placing an order for the number of copies you indicate. If the minimum for a bulk buy is reached (50 copies) these copies will be ordered and you will be expected to pay the full cost of your order.
Questions about this should be directed to Mary Russell at the NH State Library (271-2866)
