BC Books Online Launched!

On November 17, 2015, the Association of Book Publishers of British Columbia (ABPBC) launched BC Books Online, an exciting and unique database that features books and ebooks from BC publishers. Supported by technology from 49th Shelf, BC Books Online includes over 8,500 titles from 24 publishers, making it "the largest and most comprehensive collection of books published in all formats from a specific region of Canada." Visitors can search the database or browse a diverse range of categories including architecture, children's fiction, education, political science, and poetry, to name just a few. BC Books Online also offers BC Reading Lists, such as BC Books From the North Coast and LGBTQ Books from BC, compiled by BC librarians. BC ELN was one of several organizations that met in the early stages to envision what the database should include and how it could be used. Read the full press release.
