JISC schools pilot includes Education Image Gallery

JISC Collections has selected EDINA’s Education Image Gallery (EIG) service to participate in a  new initiative to test  the level of interest from UK schools in JISC Collections’ online resources.

'JISC Collections for Schools' was launched on 7 May. It aims to give UK schools access to millions of online images, newspaper archives, dictionary entries, and art, music, history and science resources for a fraction of the original cost. Discounts of up to 75% have been offered to schools for 11 resources, including the Guardian and Observer Digital Archive, the Times Digital Archive, the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, and EIG. The resources will be available to primary and secondary schools, including Academies.
