To subscribe to a new resource, all you need to do is contact the product sales representative (details listed in pricing documentation) and indicate that you would like to take advantage of the NSW.net Consortia Opt-in offer for the desired product.

Please note: some vendors provide volume based discounts and it is therefore necessary that you express your intent to subscribe by a specified date  (volume based offers highlighted in red).

Free Product Trials: A number of vendors are providing free product trials to coincide with the release of the 2021/22 consortia opt-in offers.  These trials are hosted in the eResources trial section of the NSW.net website.
