What we do
Burgundy represents a wide range of Publishers and e-Content Aggregators from around the world. We specialise in negotiating the delivery of scholarly information (journals, ebooks, proceedings, databases) to Libraries and Information Centres throughout Europe.
We are a young, independent and highly motivated company based in Oxfordshire, England.
"In the package that Burgundy provides us though eIFL negotiations we have found valuable content and publishers that we never knew about before. The consortium has saved lots of time and efforts thanks to the packages of databases that Burgundy provides us." Marika Meltsas, ELNET Consortium
"Burgundy has been very helpful in helping us to understand the particular interests of national and local consortia in acquiring digital content. This has enabled us to design specific approaches to access, business models and pricing that work well for our library partners. We think that this enables a level of collaboration that would be otherwise difficult to achieve." Mike Morgan, CEO, Morgan & Claypool Publishers
"We have had tremendous help and support from Burgundy staff in the negotiation process for a Cambridge University Press Consortium License. Burgundy´s personal contacts as well as their experience of the process itself have proven to be invaluable." John Janssen, Licensing Office, UKB Consortium
"SPIE relies on talented and professional agencies such as Burgundy to give advice and guidance on how best to construct offers for library consortia. My experience is that Burgundy is looking for a win-win situation for both the library and the publisher - and that makes for the best in any negotiation." Marybeth Manning, Director, SPIE Digital Library
"We were able to agree mutually acceptable pricing, giving our staff and students access to a useful collection of journals at a price we can afford; and giving [the publisher] better exposure to their publications. Burgundy remained neutral, but very helpful, throughout the process." Terry Bucknell, Electronic Resources Manager, University of Liverpool
"Burgundy provides access to smaller, new or emerging scholarly publishers in developing countries and provides eIFL with a one stop service that saves us both time and effort." Susan Veldsman, Content Manager, eIFL
"With great mutual attempts we managed to overcome all the bureaucratic obstacles to obtain access to the collections that we are now subscribing to." Emilija Banionyte, President, Lithuanian Research Library Consortium
