During early 2015 Griffith University and Pearson entered into discussions around the provision of eTexts to Griffith University. Through healthy discussions Griffith and Pearson were able to establish some common ground to enable the development of a licence, costing and access model to implement on a trial basis. The trial commenced in October 2015 with an initial selection of titles based on known required readings with additional titles to added throughout 2016. The purpose of the trial was to enable both Griffith and Pearson to identify if the agreed licence, costing and access models would meet both parties needs in the longer term and how the trial agreement could be improved and developed into a longer term arrangement.
