Overview for Librarians

Institutions can purchase collections of books direct from CSIRO Publishing.

How to Order

To order eBooks, library customers will need to:

  • Browse our eBook Collection lists to select what you would like to trial and/or order from publishing.subscriptions@csiro.au 
  • You may choose to trial the entire archive collection or create a flexible collection by selecting the titles that best suit your subject interests. Flexible collections need to be at least 25 titles. Pre-purchase frontlist collections are also available from 2012 onwards
  • After the order details are confirmed, an invoice will be generated for your purchase as well as a licence agreement that includes details of the collection you have chosen. Return a signed copy of the license along with payment so we can activate your collection
  • We will provide instructions on how to use the administrative portal, and support for your designated administrator on managing your collection
  • Ongoing help desk support will be available at publishing.help@csiro.au

Our terms and conditions provide perpetual, unlimited electronic access to library patrons as described in our draft agreement (PDF).
