This guide describes the new Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) subscriptions to which UVic Libraries now have access.

Evidence-Based Acquisitions (EBA) step-by step process

UVic Libraries is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of over 209,000 new eBook titles from four major publishers.

These eBook titles can be accessed via the library catalogue or searched for on the publisher  platforms above.

This is a new way of providing access to eBook titles for UVic Libraries and we have secured access to four  publisher-specific eBook collections for a 12 month subscription period. At the end of the 12 months, UVic  Libraries will select titles for purchase (perpetual access) up to the subscription level committed at the  beginning of the subscription period.
