Renewal pricing for the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Humanities E-Book collection is now available. Pricing has increased by 1.5% over last year's pricing. All subscribers will continue to enjoy a 27% consortial discount.

Libraries that are joint members of BC ELN and COPPUL are asked to submit responses to BC ELN.


Starting in January 2020, Lyrasis assumed management of the Humanities E-Book collection from the ACLS.

Lyrasis has simplified pricing for Canadian academic libraries by integrating the CRKN bands into its pricing model.



ACLS Humanities E-Book (HEB) is an online collection of over 5,400 books of high quality in the humanities and related social sciences, accessible through institutional subscription. HEB is available to entire campus communities.
