Multitype Database Licensing Program

The Multitype Database Licensing Program (MDLP) is a province-wide program in which libraries pool funds to purchase access to electronic information resources: magazines, journals, newspapers, directories, reference books, and other information resources.

The Multitype Database Licensing Committee was created by the Multitype Library Board to administer the Multitype Database Licensing Program, including:
• managing province-wide licenses;
• creating standards for participation;
• selecting and evaluating new products;
• coordinating sector participation and funding; and
• providing public awareness and training.

Participants of the program include all ten public library systems, all K to 12 schools represented by the Ministry of Education, the two university library systems, libraries on the four campuses of Saskatchewan Polytechnic, several small colleges throughout the province, plus multiple special libraries, and the Provincial Library and Literacy Office (PLLO). Provincial Library and Literacy Office takes responsibility for the administration and coordination of the program.
