BC ELN is participating in a end-of-year offer for purchasing Project MUSE ebooks, negotiated on behalf of Consortia Canada by The Alberta Library (TAL). Through this offer, over 70,000 titles are available for purchase with perpetual access.

Orders placed through BC ELN receive the 10% discount. An additional discount of 6.5% will be applied to all orders when the consortial invoice is prepared. 

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




Custom Collections: Project MUSE is excited to announce a flexible and cost-effective new way to acquire scholarly books on the platform. Project MUSE Books Custom Collections offer ultimate choice – libraries may design a targeted collection by filtering our 70,000+ available titles on criteria such as subject, publisher, and publication date, or may more closely curate a collection by making individual title selections. Instantly gain resources to support a new program/major, easily add electronic access for existing print holdings, or quickly address course needs with a collection tailored to instructor requests. See more details below.

Backfiles: For libraries interested in the backfile custom collections, external pricing is not yet available but pricing is available upon request. Libraries can contact our rep Douglas Storm for pricing. Note that MUSE has discontinued all "backfile" collections with the exception of the "All Books" Package and will only offer the Current year in the subject collections. Backfile titles can still be ordered but they are no longer available as prepared collections. Instead, a library can choose what titles they wish to have and then will be sent to the vendor through the cosortia for price confirmation.
