BC ELN 2008-2009 Ranking Survey: Outcomes Report

Outcomes for the 2008-2009 BC ELN Ranking Survey.

The survey identified three high priority items as candidates for a BC ELN consortial license. Please see http://www.eln.bc.ca/view.php?id=1724 for the full survey results.

Rank Product Outcome
1. Ebsco Canadian Points of View Reference Centre Successfully licensed September 2010.
2. Sociology: A SAGE Full-Text Collection This product was investigated in 2008 and vendor pricing was too high at that time for a license to be possible. The vendor has indicated a review of its college-level pricing is under consideration, but so far new pricing has not appeared.
3. Oxford Journals Collection It took some time for the publisher to consider a college-level consortial pricing model. BC ELN is now consulting with libraries who expressed in licensing this product, to determine whether the vendor pricing warrants further consideration.
