BC ELN, COPPUL, The Alberta Library, and the BC Libraries Cooperative are participating in a special offer for the EBSCO academic e-books collection. In total there are 10 collections, with the Academic Collection being the largest and most complete collection.

There is a 2% increase over last year's pricing. The final pricing discount will be determined by participation throughout western Canada. Libraries that are members of both BC ELN and COPPUL are asked to respond to BC ELN.

Based on current participation across the four consortia, we anticipate that libraries will benefit from a 25% discount level for over 40 libraries.


This year COPPUL and BC ELN undertook a comprehensive review of historical pricing for the EBSCO Academic e-Books subscription. The purpose of the review was to fix several pricing anomalies. As a result of the discussions between COPPUL (the consortial lead negotiator) and EBSCO, the costs for several BC ELN libraries have gone down.



This multidisciplinary collection includes thousands of e-books covering a large selection of academic subjects and features e-books from leading publishers and university presses.  

With more than 190,000 e-books covering a large selection of academic subjects and featuring e-books from leading publishers and university presses, all e-books are available with unlimited user access. New titles are added regularly to the collection at no additional cost.

Subjects include:

  • Business and  economics
  • Education
  • Language arts and disciplines
  • Literary criticism
  • Medical
  • Philosophy
  • Polititcal science
  • Religion
  • Social science
  • Technology and engineering
  • World history
