Fees for Shared Shelf
As a nonprofit endeavor, Shared Shelf fees are intended to cover the ongoing operational cost of hosting institutional content and sustaining the maintenance and development of the Shared Shelf infrastructure.
Shared Shelf's new tiered pricing incorporates classification, service, and storage costs in one annual fee, providing more predictability and value and promoting more opportunity for your institution's collection growth. Select your institution's classification from the drop down menu below to learn about the different storage levels and corresponding fees. [Note that the fees displayed are valid through 2013; 2014 fees will see a 3% increase.]
Consortia Fees: Institutions participating in established, formal consortia who only seek to access other consortial members' image collections through Shared Shelf may access consortia collections via Shared Shelf through a Network Access License, which is calculated at 25% of the Institutional Classification Intro Level Fee. Institutions with Network Access Licenses can also use Shared Shelf software with no related Service Fees for managing up to 500 image files in Shared Shelf. Network Access Licenses may be converted to a full Shared Shelf subscription if an institution would like to manage additional content.
Services for migrating legacy data and media files are also available.
[Institutions that participated in ARTstor's Pilot hosting program may continue to host their collections statically in addition to or in lieu of Shared Shelf. Static hosting is a cost-saving option that allows continued access to those collections without the ability to make any changes or additions.]
