2020/2021 Pricing Notes:

Please note some important updates relating to OUP's network business policies:

  • All renewal prices for existing subscriptions will be increased by 2% for 2020
  • OED Online pricing for NEW subscriptions: .33 per weighted FTE (refer to bundle pricing for K-12 schools); all OED renewals will increase 2% over the 2019 price
  • As of July 1, 2020, OUP is discontinuing minimum prices on all subscriptions except NEW OED orders
    • Minimum subscription price for new OED orders: $460

Pro-rating School Subscriptions:

Oxford offers very attractive "School Bundle Pricing" for K-12 schools, and allows the prorating of school subscriptions throughout the year. There will no longer be a minimum price for K-12 subscriptions to align with a policy change on direct subscriptions.

Cancellation Policy; User Level Downgrades & Upgrades:

Oxford's policy remains that all subscriptions are non-cancellable and non-refundable. Additionally, OUP will not allow credits for a user level downgrade during the course of a subscription. User level upgrades are always welcome and will be prorated for the appropriate term.

Multi-Campus Academic Institutions / Multi-Branch Public Libraries:

There will be no aggregating of FTE's for academic institutions with multiple campuses or public library systems with multiple branches.  Each branch will be invoiced separately.

Subscription Term:

July 1 - June 30

January 1 - December 31 (for Oxford Online Law Resources)

Deadline: 

May 31, 2020 (for a July 1, 2020 start date)

Late Renewals: Beginning in 2020, OUP is discontinuing fees for late renewals. OUP  will automatically cancel any subscription not renewed by July 1st, so customers will lose access at that time.

New mid-term subscriptions will be accepted.  Subscription fees will be prorated for the months remaining in the subscription term, but no subscription fee will be prorated below the minimum rate. 

For mid-term subscriptions you must have your order form and signed license agreements to the Nebraska Library Commission by the 10th of the month to have access beginning the first day of the following month.
