Our renewed eBooks, eAudiobooks and Print Books framework (376E) is now live



Libraries and related services can change lives for the better, providing access to books and literature in different ways to help create opportunities for adults, children and the communities around us to learn and develop.

The way in which people use a library service and access books is ever changing. Especially during these challenging times with budget cuts amongst Covid-19 and the necessity for contact-free access, there is growing demand for digital lending particularly with schools and local authorities.

Printed materials still remain a requirement, predominantly for curriculum, revision guides, reference materials, handbooks and manuals.

To help support public sector organisations with their books and related requirements, we have a free-to-access renewed and improved eBooks, eAudiobooks and Print Books framework (376E), providing procurement compliant access to market leading suppliers.


The framework is split into the following two Lots:
 

Lot 1: Digital Books Lot 2: Books




What are the benefits of Lot 1?
 

Social value enabled
Customers can include social value in their contract, even when making a direct award. Why not ask us how the suppliers listed can demonstrate social value in your procurement?
 
Price transparency
Transparent pricing makes direct award simpler and can provide true best value.
 
Quick and easy to use
It’s now easier to compare supplier product and service offerings using the information available within the User Guide.
 
Expert help and guidance
We understand the procurement process can seem daunting, but our team of experts can offer advice, guidance and support including FREE template documents for further competition.




What are the benefits of Lot 2?
 

Save time and money
Customers can easily identify the supplier offering the best discount (off RRP) on the specific books they are looking to buy.
 
Achieve savings
Great discounts available of up to 35% off RRP.
 
Market leading suppliers
From high street retail bookshops to specialist suppliers, customers get access to leading suppliers through the framework.
 
Quick and easy to use
It’s now easier to compare supplier product and service offerings using the information available within the User Guide.
