DSM-5 Library / PsychiatryOnline Offer 2014-2015

Response Deadline: 
September 26, 2014

Subscription Term


January 1, 2015

e-HLbc is pleased to offer a subscription to the American Psychiatric Publishing (APP) DSM-5 / Psychiatry Online, a Consortia Canada license negotiated by e-HLbc and the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). 

The vendor is a smaller publisher with very rigid structures. Consequently, this was a complicated license to negotiate, and the subscription process reflects this. 

APP is providing e-HLbc member institutions with a choice of three subscription packages: DSM-5 Library (DSM-5), PsychiatryOnline Core (POL Core), and PsychiatryOnline Premium (POL Premium). 

Participation discounts are aggregated for all three APP packages across Canada.  Existing subscribers to the APP products are encouraged to join the e-HLbc subscription to enjoy the group participation discounts.


The American Psychiatric Publishing (APP) Journals and PsychiatryOnline Packages (including DSM-5 and other textbooks) are moving to a new platform on Wednesday October 29, 2014. The new technology partner is Atypon, and the platform is Literatum.  More details are available on the publisher's website.
