Contract negotiations for the new INfo Express delivery service contract recently concluded and the State Library is pleased to announce fees for the service will increase minimally during the next service year (July 1, 2011 - June 30, 2012). The State Library is pleased negotiations with Wheels Assured resulted in stable prices for this next year in spite of significant fluctuations in fuel prices (the price of gasoline has increased nearly 40% since the contract began) and other economic conditions.
In addition to keeping prices low, the State Library will continue to subsidize one-day-a-week delivery service at $75 for public libraries that meet the requirements of the INfo Express program. This incentive was established to promote resource sharing throughout Indiana's library community.
Additionally, any library increasing its weekly delivery days AND participating as an active lender through OCLC's WorldCat or as an Evergreen Indiana member library will be provided a special rate for a second subsidized day at $125. These libraries (and libraries already at five-days-a-week service) will receive an additional day of delivery provided at the subsidized rate of $125 for the year, rather than the normal rate of $450 per weekly stop. An additional item of note is that summer closing pricing will NOT be offered during the next service year.
Please find the renewal form and instructions at infoexpress.in.gov. Renewal requests must be received by June 15, 2011. If you have already submitted your renewal please do not submit it again. INfo Express payments may continue to be sent and made payable to the State Library.
Please contact Mike Hicks at (317) 232-3699, toll free (877) 835-0014 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with additional questions or for more information.
