The Common Suite is a suite of databases consisting of Academic Search and Business Source, and licensed by all BC ELN partner libraries.


A new three-year common suite has been agreed to by all partner libraries. 2021-22 marks the beginning of the current iteration of the common suite.



The Common Suite is a suite of databases subscribed to by all BC ELN partner libraries. It consists of Academic Search and Business Source at the Complete level. Libraries may instead choose Academic Search Premier and Business Source Complete, along with one of a selection of Wilson Source products.

Academic Search

Designed for academic institutions, this database is a leading resource for scholarly research. It supports high-level research in the key areas of academic study by providing journals, periodicals, reports, books and more.

Academic Search Premier covers the expansive academic disciplines offered in colleges and universities. It provides comprehensive content, including PDF backfiles and searchable cited references.

Academic Search Complete offers an enormous collection of full-text journals, providing users access to critical information from many sources unique to this database. In addition, it includes peer-reviewed full text for STEM research, as well as for the social sciences and humanities. Scholarly content covers a broad range of important areas of academic study, including anthropology, engineering, law, sciences and more. 

Business Source

The industry's most widely used business research database, Business Source Premier features full text and searchable cited references for top journals covering a variety of business disciplines.

In terms of premium content, peer-reviewed sources and business related journals, Business Source Complete offers comprehensive full-text coverage plus indexing and abstracts for the most important scholarly business journals, dating back as far as 1886.

When Business Source Complete is combined with the new comprehensive database Regional Business News Plus, the result is a package that delivers more key content to academic researchers than any other business database available.
