WPLC Buying Pool 2018

WPLC logo

  • The WPLC Buying Pool numbers have been incorporated into the Technology Planning Guide details sheet(s) for 2018 and forward.
  • In 2017, WVLS is covering the cost for the new $150K addition to the pool.  In 2018 and on, WVLS will be using a bill-behind model for pass-through, meaning that in any given year WVLS will be billing for the previous year’s known costs.
  • In 2016, the WPLC Steering Committee recommended, and the WPLC Board approved an increase in the buying pool of $150,000, bringing the 2017 pool amount to $1,150,000.
  • 2018 is a jump-start year, and is based on 2017’s known numbers. The guide for 2019 will use the known numbers for 2018, giving libraries more than one full year to budget for their shares.
  • Libraries will receive a single invoice for Technology Services, which now incorporates the WPLC Buying Pool share pass-through.
  • Find your library’s WPLC Buying Pool shares labeled Digital Library in the 2018 Technology Planning Guide-Page 2
  • Please see the WPLC Board website for information, meeting agendas and documents.
  • Shares are calculated based on usage and municipal population.
