Response Deadline: 
October 25, 2017

Subscription Term


January 1, 2018


December 31, 2018

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.

Pricing has increased by 4.5% over last year's pricing after intense negotiations.


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

New this year: APP will count any legacy purchases towards participation.
