Archive CD Books USA is happy to offer substantial discounts to public
libraries and qualifying membership societies that serve the genealogical
community. The standard institutional discount is 33% off the retail
price. (Discounts as large as 50% are available under our Patron
Membership - see below). Shipping is also FREE on orders with a total
invoice value over $50.00.
An Institutional Membership is a great way for libraries/societies on
a limited budget to provide valuable research tools to their patrons/members.
You can choose from the entire inventory of the international Archive
CD Books Project, including thousands of CDs containing digital copies
of rare genealogy books, census records, parish records and other original
records, most of which support an every-word search. The original publications
and material are from the United States, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland,
Canada, Australia, and other countries. Popular in-store promotions for
Savage's classic "Genealogical
Dictionary of The First Settlers of New England" (1860) and "Black's
Law Dictionary" (1st Edition, 1891), among others, can be combined
with the institutional discount for even more savings.
Note that the USA company is the most recent partner in the international
Archive CD Books Project. At this time, therefore, our inventory contains
fewer titles from the U.S than from other countries -- but we're growing

use of patrons/members.
- The material must not be allowed off the premises (e.g., on loan to
patrons) except to a permanent backup/storage facility.
- All conditions of the single-user license (prohibiting decompiling,
repackaging, etc.) still apply. A copy of that license is on the CD
- Products purchased with an institutional discount may not be resold.
Libraries/societies which operate a store may apply for a separate reseller
