ProQuest has revised the pricing models for Academic Complete and College Complete, transitioning from models based on per-FTE costs to models based on FTE tiers. See the Pricing section below for more details.

The Canada Collection, made up of 9,800 Canada-specific titles and 1,600 French titles, is now included with a subscription to either Academic Complete or College Complete.








Academic Complete

Academic Complete offers libraries an affordable, critical mass of 187,000+ multidisciplinary ebooks with unlimited, multi-user access, powerful research tools and DRM-free chapter downloads. Because we focus on quality over quantity and never add fillers, a higher percentage of our titles are likely to be used for longer periods of time.

Unique attributes include exclusive titles from key publishers like Wiley, session and user based usage data with Patron Analytics. Academic Complete also includes the Book Display Widget for promoting titles on any website and select elements of Syndetics Unbound which provides enrichment elements like reviews and recommendations directly within Ebook Central. 

College Complete

By 2020, the world could be short more than 40 million college educated workers and many of these vacant positions are in mid-level jobs in professions like manufacturing, nursing, electrical engineering, construction, and other trades. ProQuest helps libraries prepare their students for these sought-after jobs and achieve academic success with College Complete, a growing subscription of more than 46,000+ ebooks hand selected by on-staff librarians.

Canada Collection

Included in both the College Complete and Academic Complete subsciptions, the Canada Collection has a growing selection of more than 11,000 Canada-specific titles and more than 2,000 French titles, and covers all levels of the academic curriculum. Seventy world-renowned publishers contribute to the subscription including McGill-Queen’s University Press, University of Toronto Press, The University of Alberta Press, UBC Press and many others.
