The Undergraduate Foundation Collection (UFC) is a common suite of databases consisting of Academic Search Complete and Business Source Complete.  In 2015, the UFC renewal was conducted by survey and ratified by consensus by the BC ELN Steering Committee with the agreement of all partner libraries. The agreement brought the following benefits:

  • No price increase in 2015-16 for libraries already at the Complete level
  • Upgrades to the Complete level for all other libraries at steep discounts; all libraries now have access to Academic Search Complete and Business Source Complete
  • Low price increases (2% to 3%) in 2016/17 and 2017/18
  • A two-year license term, with an optional third year extension

After discussion this winter, it was agreed that optional 3rd year be used to allow for more time to evaluate options and negotiate a new common suite for 2018/19.

Pricing by institution is listed below.
