We negotiate direct with publishers on behalf of Schools, Further Education Colleges and Public Libraries in order to achieve the very best pricing.

What pricing models are available for each sector?

  • Schools: For most of the products, the annual subscription fee is based on a cost per learner for the total number of learners at the school. For JSTOR, and MASSOLIT please refer to their catalogue page or request a price quotation here.
  • Further Education Colleges: Pricing is available according to JISC banding.
  • Higher Education Institutions: Pricing is available according to JISC banding.
  • Public Libraries: We offer a banded pricing model which is based on the total population served by an individual Public Library or Public Library Authority.
  • Small organisations and family history groups: Subscriptions are priced per ‘seat’ – one ‘seat’ is equivalent to one concurrent user. For example, a three seat subscription would allow any three users to access the resource concurrently. The price per seat for ‘X’ is ‘£X’ per annum, ex VAT. There is also a significant discount for ordering subscriptions to both Findmypast and the British Newspaper Archive at the same time.
