The National Electronic Site Licence Initiative (NESLI) Managing Agent has confirmed an agreement with Kluwer Academic Publishers to provide UK universities with access to all electronic journals published by Kluwer.

The two-year agreement begins in January 2000 following a free trial in 1999. UK higher education institutes will have the option to purchase access to all the titles on Kluwer Online, Kluwer's electronic journal service, for a percentage surcharge on print expenditure. In 2001 libraries will be able to cancel their print subscriptions in favour of electronic only access, although they will retain the option to buy the print copies.

The Publisher Relations Manager for Electronic Services at Swets, Albert Prior, commented on behalf of the NESLI Managing Agent: "We are very pleased to have concluded this agreement with Kluwer. The titles from Kluwer join the extensive collection of e-journals from other major STM publishers that are now available under the NESLI initiative".

Jan Hattink, Director of Library Relations at Kluwer said: "This initiative presents libraries with a unique opportunity to offer their patrons access to the contents of a vast collection of over 600 journals in a cost effective way. We are looking forward to working with the UK library community and the Managing Agent in the successful implementation of this agreement".
