2022 pricing is now ready for CBCA. Pricing has increased 3% over last year, however, there are efforts to get this reduced. Members will be notified of any changes.
Note: This offer is for public and special libraries only, as academic libraries have access to CBCA Complete through LHCADL.
Update: The original price increase was 3% over last year, but after negotiations, this has been adjusted to 2.5% over last year. The new price spreadsheet is attached below.
