Sage Evidence Based Acquisition Program

Sage Knowledge contains over 5,000 titles including a range of eBook and eReference content, including scholarly monographs, reference works, handbooks, series, and professional development titles.

With Sage's Evidence Based Acquisitions Program (EBA), institutions pre-pay the minimum tiered content fee and receive access to the whole SAGE Knowledge Collection for one year.  At the end of that 12-month period the Subscribing Institution can choose titles to license in perpetuity based upon evidence-based usage, up to the value of the initial pre-paid deposit. 

Institutions will be able to access COUNTER compliant usage statistics to inform their decisions.  The Institution will have 30 days to decide which titles they would like to license in perpetuity.  At the end of the year program, the prepaid amount is then used to purchase ebooks.

Multi-Consortial Note: 

This license is made available through a site license negotiated by several conosortia Council of Prairies and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL), The Alberta Library (TAL),  and BCELN
