This is year one of a renewed three-year offer that begins in 2021/22 for the Complete JBI Package, consisting of a database, journal, and accompanying tools. The offer includes an opt-out clause so that member institutions can cancel their subscription before the end of the three-year term if cancellation is required due to budgetary issues or changes in local programs.

Flat pricing was negotiated for year 1, with 4% increases in year 2 and year 3. 

New joins are welcome! A new subscriber incentive of 10% discount in year 1 has been negotiated. The upcoming webinar on November 2 will outline the uniqueness of this resource, the incentive and an offer of a 45 day free trial.

Member institutions that are joint members of eHLbc and COPPUL are asked to submit responses to eHLbc.
