Califa Saves Libraries Money

Each year we try to quantify the benefits of Califa membership for our libraries, and we are thrilled that we helped save libraries over $4 million in FY 2012-2013! 

A number of Califa Members individually saved over $300,000 for their libraries. These Super Savers hopefully can inspire others to take advantage of all the savings Califa can offer.

We negotiated discounted pricing for some of the most popular products in the library market, with pricing on services ranging from databases to library patron satisfaction surveys.

We organize shared eBook collections for libraries that want to offer new technologies at a consortial price.

We also host popular software on our own servers, cutting down the need for staff time to work with a vendor to set up hosting on a library server.

Check out the 2012/2013 Member Savings Report to make sure your library is getting the most out of your membership dollars.

Additionally, if your library was unable to save money through your Califa membership this year, we'd love to speak with you about ways that you may be able to save next year!
