2017-18 Ranking Survey Outcomes Report

BC ELN will explore the four top ranked resources (listed below) for potential consortial licensing. This page will be updated as investigations wrap up.

  • Statista: The Statistics Portal
    • Successfully licensed via a national agreement in 2017
  • Academic Search Ultimate
    • Negotiations finalized and Academic Search and Business Source Ultimate pricing was distributed in May 2019.
  • (TIE) LGBT Life and Safari Tech Books Online
    • LGBT Life was sucessfully licensed, and the offer was distributed in Fall 2018
    • Consortial access to Safari Tech Books has been investigated; due to technical complexities in moving forward negotiating access via the new platform, which demands a single sign-on authentication method, talks with the vendor have concluded for now. BC ELN will check in with the vendor periodically to investigate if any changes should occur and talks can resume.
