This is an offer for a one time purchase (perpetual access, no hosting or platform fees) of EBSCO ebooks.
This is a joint TAL/COPPUL/BC ELN/MLCI EBSCO ebook offer. The total discount depends on the number of ebooks orders placed across all consortium until the offer period ends, February 24, 2016.
EBSCO has extended the order deadline by one week - please submit orders before March 7th.
UPDATE: February 29 - we have enough participants to qualify for a 20% discount; a 25% discount is still a possibility depending on the number of participants.
There are over 407, 000 eligible titles for the eBook Consortia offer. This is for ebooks for a one time purchase, not a subscription offering.
Use EBSCOhost Collection Manager (ECM) to view the titles at:
Use the filter using the “Consortia Eligible” titles limiter to view only titled eligible for the consortium discount.
You can build a list though ECM and then export the list for purchase. Also, below there is a spreadsheet of subject sets you can use. You may purchase an entire collection or select individual titles. You need not order an entire subject collection, you may pick and choose what titles(s) you would like to order.
You must submit your order direct to TAL using a spreadsheet. You may either copy and past from the subject spreadsheet provided or export an excel spreadsheet from the ECM. You cannot purchase the titles directly through ECM, YBP Gobi, or Oasis to get the consortium discount.
If you don’t have an ECM account, have forgotten your id and password, or have an expired account, please contact Technical Support at: 1.800.758.5995 and press “1”.
One webinar will be held to show how to make lists in ECM and then how to export the list. The webinar will be held February 3th at 11:00am MT. Details on log-in information to come.
There are 62 Subject Sets available. You can view the subject sets from the attachment called “Canadian Consortia Subject Sets 2016”.

All eBooks are available at 1B1U (one book for one user at a time) and most of the books are available at 1B3U (one book for three users at a time) and 1BUU (one book for unlimited users at a time). When you are in ECM, you will be able to view the cost for your institution for all access models. If you are interested in purchasing a/some Subject Sets, EBSCO will custom quote for you.
