About Licence subscriptions manager

Licence subscriptions manager is an online tool developed by Jisc that enables institutions and customers to search, purchase, and manage their subscriptions to e-books, e-journals, and databases negotiated by Jisc Collections.

Institutions can also use Licence subscriptions manager to manage their subscriptions to other selected Jisc services, including JUSP and e-books for FE.

What does this mean for libraries?

Licence subscriptions manager offers you a central place to browse and subscribe to digital content and Jisc products and services that support learning, teaching and research in your institution.

The content and services available in Licence subscriptions manager always have the best pricing with deep discounts off publisher list prices. This is thanks to the negotiation and licensing service provided by Jisc Licensing. Our licence terms and conditions meet the requirements of institutions and their users, and are compliant with procurement regulations.

Log in to your institution's account to view, renew and keep track of all your subscriptions in one central location.

What does this mean for publishers and suppliers?

Our service saves publishers time and effort, allowing more time to build relationships with librarians and users regarding content and resources.

All UK publicly funded higher education institutions are automatically members of Jisc Licensing and are eligible to subscribe to the agreements we negotiate for them. Our expertise in negotiation and licensing means institutions can be confident that the terms and conditions of our agreements meet their requirements and can subscribe to your offer without delay.
