LMAs were created to help our customers more effectively and easily maintain their large print libraries. Ask your Account Representative how the LMA can help you save money, streamline your administrative processes, and simplify your budgeting with predictable monthly pricing.

Save Money on Subscriptions
A Library Maintenance Agreement unifies all of your print subscriptions into a single contract with lower year-over-year increases.
Lock in Current Costs
If you are currently receiving a discounted rate for a title, the title is rolled into the deal at the discounted rate.
Enjoy Predictable Pricing
Your pricing is fixed for the life of the contract, so your library is unaffected by subscription price increases for titles included in the agreement. You know precisely what you will pay for several years in advance.
The invoice is generated on the 4th of the month and can be viewed immediately on My Account. Since the LMA goes into effect on the first day of the month after you enter into the agreement, your first invoice is considered the transitional month. During the transitional month, your invoice will contain charges for 1) any regularly billed items from the previous month and 2) this month's new LMA charges; these charges are prospective in nature.
No. The LMA overrides unit costs on individual book subscriptions. The allocated value for each book subscription can be viewed in the monthly LMA Allocation Report found on My Account. You can also reference your LMA contract for the full-year view.
Your agreement covers new volumes for a title included in your LMA; there is no additional charge. Pocket parts, pamphlets, replacement or ancillary volumes, looseleaf pages, related supplemental materials, new disc versions, and updates are included in the agreement.
