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.
