Prices for 2016-2017 are now ready. This is a joint TAL/BC ELN/COPPUL/MLCI agreement and ProQuest has presented an interesting "all in" deal along with the regular renewal pricing.
These are subscription collections with no perpetual access.
Ebrary is offered to TAL libraries as a joint license with COPPUL, BC ELN, and the Manitoba Library Consortium. COPPUL is the lead.
Formerly ebrary, the new ProQuest ebook platform is eBook Central. The collections offered remain the same.
TAL, BC-ELN, and COPPUL currently share a license for the subscription ebook products: ProQuest Academic and College Complete. In 2015-16, twenty schools spent $300,916 on subscription ebooks. This is a November 1, 2016 renewal.
For 2016-17, ProQuest is offering two options for this November 1 2016 to October 31 2017 license:
Option 1 includes Academic Complete OR College Complete on the new eBook Central platform.
Option 2 includes Academic Complete, College Complete, and University Press ebook collections.
The full offer in the attached Word document below includes more detailed product information.
Late subscribers will be accepted.
If you wish to join, cancel or modify an existing subscription, please contact Christa Foley, firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, Wednesday, October 12, 2016. Please indicate if you wish to participate in option 1 or 2. TAL, COPPUL, and BC ELN will collect the responses on October 12 and determine if there is enough interest to pursue option 2. If there is not enough interest, orders will be placed using option 1 pricing.
New subscribers will be sent a subscribers’ agreement and asked to submit a signed copy at your earliest convenience.
