“What is the BC ELN Community? Diverse, certainly… but a group that shares a common goal: to connect post-secondary students, educators, and researchers with the information and skills they need to thrive.”

We invite you to read more about the BC ELN community in Innovation & Success 2017! This annual report highlights the accomplishments that collaboration makes possible:

Did you know?

  • BC ELN Partner Libraries are spread throughout BC and into the Yukon (p.4); a quarter of BC ELN institutions are located in rural areas (p.5)
  • Collaborative licensing saved the post-secondary sector $3.3 million in 2017 (p.5)
  • More than 10 million books, DVDs, sound recordings, and more are available through OutLook OnLine (p.7)
  • AskAway and WriteAway continue to expand; together they welcomed three new institutions in 2017 (p.8)
  • In 2017 Arca received the BCLA Eureka Award in recognition of outstanding achievement (p.9)

Thank you to the many folks at BC ELN institutions who contributed photographs of their library communities.
