6 From: Selden Lamoureux Sent: Monday, April 04, :50 AM To: Subject: SERU for Atomization and Sprays (Begell House) Dear Meghan. I was pleased to see that Begell House is registered with SERU (as is the North Carolina State University Libraries). We would like very much to begin a subscription for Atomization and Sprays through EBSCO, our subscription agent, and I wanted to write and confirm with you that we will need no additional licensing to do so, but will rely instead on SERU. I want to note that Begell House is a participant in Portico at the PCA level, something we also very much appreciate, and which makes it possible for us to subscribe as e-only. I do have one question: could we use the NCSU standard authorized user definition? "Authorizes Users are the Employees, Faculty, Staff, Registered Users and Students officially affiliated with NCSU. (If you prefer the SERU standard definition, that is also fine, just let me know.) Once I have your reply, we will place our order with EBSCO. Thanks for making the acquisition process fast and easy, we so much appreciate your participation in SERU and in Portico at the PCA level. -Selden

7 "meghan" 4/5/2011 9:51 AM Dear Selden, Thank you for your kind ; Begell House is delighted to now be registered with SERU, I think it is a good way to save our customers the hassle of individual licensing. We hope to make further improvements in our policies and practices that will make the subscription process as easy as possible. The NCSU definition for authorized users is totally fine by us; thank you for letting us know you wish to use SERU as opposed to the traditional license. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don't hesitate to call or me at any time. Best wishes, Meghan
