The 2009 ALPSP Learned Journals Collection (ALJC) from ALPSP and Swets includes a total of 773 titles, of which 122 titles are new to the collection. Nine subject-specific collections are available. Two new publishers have agreed to make their titles available in the 2009 Collection, INFORMS and Guilford Publications, which brings the total number of publishers involved to 49.

Initiated by ALPSP in 2003, the ALJC enables smaller and medium-sized publishers to sell their titles effectively to consortia and other library customers. The range of content from the ALJC is supplied to customers through a single umbrella licence, pricing model and delivery platform. The complex licensing and legal structure of this cross-publisher initiative is coordinated by Swets, who also service the worldwide sales, marketing and online content access channels for the collection.
