Shared Services

BC ELN works with partner libraries and stakeholders in British Columbia and beyond to coordinate, develop, and implement shared services that benefit all participants. BC ELN’s shared services include:


Arca Digital Repository is a collaborative initiative that puts the development and implementation of a digital repository within reach for every organization, at a reasonable cost, and in a supported environment. 

BCHDP-Arca Hosting Initiative

BC ELN and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC) at the University of British Columbia Library have partnered to allow successful past and future British Columbia History Digitization Program (BCHDP) grant recipients the option of hosting their digitized material on Arca.

Electronic Health Library of British Columbia (eHLbc)

Since eHLbc’s establishment in 2006, BC ELN has acted as its Administrative Centre. In this capacity supporting its sister consortium, BC ELN empowers health libraries across the province and in the Yukon through collaborative licensing, technical support, and communications.
