The Council of Chief Librarians (CCL), in cooperation with the Community College League of California, is pleased to announce a program to allow Community College Libraries to purchase SAGE products at a discount. The two special offers made during 2018 to our group are SAGE Premier (journals) and the SAGE Video Practical Research & Academic Skills collection.

SAGE Premier -- Special Offer for 2018

SAGE is offering CCL members the opportunity to subscribe to SAGE Premier, a collection of more than 1,000 peer-reviewed academic journals, at a substantial discount. A minimum participation threshold from our group must be met; a minimum of 25 community college libraries must subscribe in order for this offer to “make.” In addition, if your college is interested in subscribing, if your library places an order for SAGE Premier in 2018, your college will receive complementary access to SAGE Premier for the remainder of 2018 (if the offer does not “make,” access will be discontinued after January 1, 2019). SAGE Premier’s journal titles are usually not included in any third-party aggregated databases (i.e., EBSCOHost databases), and include many leading titles in the disciplines of education, psychology, criminology, nursing, allied heath, sociology, political science, gender studies, and communication. A subscription to SAGE Premier includes access to journal articles from 1999 through the present, and it includes perpetual access to the journal articles published in any years a library maintains a SAGE Premier subscription.
