National Geographic Virtual Library Renewal 2016-2017

Response Deadline: 
December 16, 2016

Subscription Term


January 1, 2017


December 31, 2017

Our apologies for the late renewal notice. Clarification from the vendor was needed and so prevented renewal pricing being sent out earlier.

The Gale products are made available to BC ELN partner libraries through a national site license negotiated on behalf of Consortia Canada by The Alberta Library (TAL). The vendor has revised the subscription options and pricing tiers. There has been a -0-2% increase in pricing depending on the collection and tier.

There are four subscription options available this year:

  1. National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994 Archive (purchase)
  2. National Geographic Magazine Archive (purchase) & Current (subscription)
  3. National Geographic Magazine Archive, Current & People, Animals, and the World (PAW)
  4. National Geographic Archive, Current, PAW & Kids

Current subscribers have the option of continuing with their subscription at the same cost or upgrading to one of the new options.


National Geographic is available as a subscription or archive purchase; The National Geographic Magazine Archive, 1888-1994 is available as a subscription or a one time purchase (with annual hosting fees).  The National Geographic Magazine, 1995-Current is available as a subscription only.  Libraries may get either one, or both.  There are four options available as above.

Included is every page and every photograph, all fully searchable through an intuitive interface.  Images, maps, videos and printed content are all included.
