Kortext highest-scoring supplier on SUPC Framework for eTextbooks

Kortext has been named again as the highest scorer for eTextbook supply under the new Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC) Framework Agreement covering the supply of content and services to universities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland from January 2022.

Kortext supplies over 100 universities across the UK with digital learning resources and this award recognises the range of products and services that Kortext has developed to support student learning, enhance access and improve outcomes, as more universities move towards a blended delivery model for learning.

Through various models, Kortext can supply any university’s requirements on eTextbooks and other library resources and has the largest range of learning content available in the UK to support online course delivery and independent student study.

Matthew Lawson,  Director Library and Student Support, Middlesex University, stated: “Since the start of the pandemic, we have worked closely with Kortext to ensure that our students get access to their required learning content and we now look forward to continuing our partnership and utilising the learning engagement data that Kortext delivers to better support our academics and students.”
