Outcomes for the 2006-2007 BC ELN Ranking Survey.

Rank Product Outcome
1. Quicklaw Successfully licensed July 2007.
2. (tie) Ebsco's Education Research Complete A comparative trial with Gale's Educator's Reference Complete product was held in January 2007. Competitive pricing was achieved. However, there was insufficient commitment from libraries to license either product.
2. (tie) SAGE Social Science Collections: Sociology Pricing was obtained and a follow-up survey was carried out with interested libraries. The survey indicated that there would not be sufficient participation to make licensing possible.
4. SAGE Social Science Collections: Criminology Pricing was obtained and a follow-up survey was carried out with interested libraries. The survey indicated that there would not be sufficient participation to make licensing possible.
5. ARTstor ARTstor is licensed by CRKN, resulting in insufficient participation for BC ELN to achieve discount pricing.
