Renewal pricing is now available for DSM-5 Library (DSM-5), PsychiatryOnline Core (POL Core), PsychiatryOnline Premium (POL Premium), and DSM Legacy Collection (DSM Legacy).

These collections are made available to e-HLbc member institutions through a national site license negotiated on behalf of Consortia Canada by the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL). Libraries that are members of BC ELN and COPPUL are asked to send their responses to BC ELN.

Price increases vary but pricing for most tiers has increased by 4% over last year's pricing.


The group participation discount, based on the combined participation of libraries across Canada on any of the three collections, is currently set at 15%.

New subscribers will receive an additional 1% off the group participation discount for the first year only.
