Swets has signed a three-year contract with the UK Houses of Parliament for the supply and delivery of periodicals to both Houses. Together, the House of Commons Library and the House of Lords Library acquire and maintain an extensive, significant collection of periodicals. Swets is now responsible for the ordering, delivery and online access of all such material.

The Houses will use Swets’ online procurement and content management platform, SwetsWise, to monitor and maintain all purchases and to simplify the acquisition process across both libraries. The libraries will also roll out the SwetsWise Online Content module to all users, providing them with a single interface through which to gain seamless, direct access to the libraries’ e-journals so that users get access to the content they need, whenever they need it.

'We are immensely proud to serve such a revered institution as the Houses of Parliament,' said Robert Jacobs, Swets’ commercial director for UK & Ireland. 'Swets has firmly established itself as the leading provider of information solutions for a range of organisations, across many sectors. Our experience in facilitating the acquisition, delivery and online access of large volumes of information, in varying published formats, will play a key role in addressing the needs of both Houses.'
