The study will be framed around three fundamental questions:

1:  Collecting in Higher Education: the current situation

2:  The drivers for collecting across the Higher Education sector

3:  The challenges and potential channels for future collecting

The study will be conducted from the beginning of March to the end of October 2016. Tender submissions will be evaluated on a combination of Price (40%) and Quality of Response (60%).
