Response Deadline: 
June 21, 2018

August 1, 2018

Pricing is now available for the renewal of the Wilson Legacy Bundle and Source Databases: Applied Science & Technology Source, Art Source, Education Source and Humanities Source.

As outlined in previous renewals, due to legacy pricing agreements negotiated with EBSCO, no new subscribers will be allowed onto the Wilson Legacy Bundle. However, the Source Databases are available to all BC ELN partner libraries. Partner libraries enjoy discounts on Wilson products partly due to BC ELN's subscriptions to Academic Search Complete. Note Art Source is now called Art & Architecture Source.

There is a 3% increase over previous the year's pricing. Please see the Pricing section below for full details.


There are two different collections discussed within this renewal:

  1. Wilson Legacy Bundle (Indexes and full text upgrades)
  2. Ebsco Source Databases

Wilson Legacy Bundle

The seven Wilson Indexes are a single package. Six of these had optional fulltext upgrades. As of 2012, there is no option for new subscribers to join the index and full text upgrade packages, nor can existing subscribers change full text packages. Note that if the Wilson Legacy Bundle is cancelled, it cannot be re-subscribed to.


Source Databases

Vendor Notes: The Source databases were developed from a merger of high-quality databases from EBSCO and H.W. Wilson, and include many unique sources.



The Wilson Indexes + Full Text is a legacy licence. As of August 2012 no new libraries may join, and current subscribers cannot adjust collections, only drop the entire product. EBSCO will soon be announcing new products which will enable libraries to obtain access to a re-packaged version of the same content.

Direct URLs are formed by adding the three letter short name to end of the following:,uid&profile=ehost&def..."

Libraries participating in this licence receive access to a group of seven index products, the former Wilson Indexes package, consisting of:

Libraries also receive access to one or more of six fulltext add-on packages.
