Now that we can no longer get SQL through TechSoup ... does anyone have any advice for libraries? I have the change to get some new server hardware for our ILS but am hoping to find SQL Standard as affordably as possible to keep costs down.
I don't know much about the product donation side of TechSoup, but I still see SQL Server listed in the catalog. It's under https://www.techsoup.org/databases-and-analytics as well as
