Late joins to the license are welcome.
- License Start Date - July 1, 2014 is the license start date. However, BC ELN has negotiated rolling implementation. That means that those institutions who join the EDS subscription early could get a few months of free access once EDS has been set up for their institutions.
- 3 Year Commitment - EBSCO has agreed to an annual license; however, to lock in these deep discounts, BC ELN and e-HLbc have negotiated a 3 year good faith commitment for participants. Of course, in the case of economic emergencies, institutions may drop at the annual renewal with no penalty.
- Price increases - BC ELN and e-HLbc have negotiated that price increases for EDS will be no more than 3% annually over the next 3 years.
- Participation Discounts - Participation discounts will be locked in for 2 years after the 2014 response deadline passes. At the 2016 renewal, participation discounts will be re-evaluated.
