Michigan Cooperative Directors Association
Negotiated by REMC Association for Michigan school libraries with pricing available for public libraries.
Libraries are eligible to purchase off any of the REMC bids. REMC SAVE is the group that manages all of the bids.
Most of the REMC bids are ongoing for multiple years, so a library just needs to search the REMC catalog and contact the vendor directly. So depending on what they're looking for, the items may be available now.
All purchases must be made through SPOT
