Take a look and decide whether these great offers can help stretch your budget for the next school year.
ADVANTAGE 5: ERAC Online Resource Database Bundle
What does $1.00 buy these days? It gets you access to the ERAC Online Database Bundle and savings galore for school districts. At one dollar per FTE, participating schools and Districts are allowed unlimited access to an extensive EBSCO collection, World Book's Complete Reference Centre, 14 Gale-Cengage products and Legaleze. New components this year include Gale-Cengage's "Global Issues in Context" and EBSCO's "Canadian Points of View". For a nominal additional charge, ERAC members can also add three new World Book Products. For all the offering details until August 31, 2011 click here.
Did you know that last year, on the $6.8 million combined purchases, ERAC member districts saved $8.1 million? Do the math and you get one valuable return on investment!
ADVANTAGE 6: Renew Your Provincial Microsoft Licensing (PML) Agreement!
Keep an eye on your email Inbox for the annual invitation to renew or join the ERAC Microsoft Provincial Licensing (PML) Agreement!
