Pricing

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, MASSOLIT and Audiopi 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.
