EBA: Evidence-Based Acquisitions eBooks

This guide describes the new Evidence-Based Acquisition (EBA) subscriptions available at UVic Libraries

Cambridge University Press eBooks

Cambridge University Press (via Cambridge Core)

Subscription renewed annually

ILL: Yes

Alumni access: Yes

Exclusions: Cambridge Histories Online and Cambridge Handbooks  series are excluded from EBA package. The titles within those series to which we have access can be seen via the same platform


UVic Libraries has access to the complete Cambridge University Press EBA eBook collection. The eBooks are accessed via the Cambridge Core platform. 

At the end of the subscription period, UVic Libraries selects eBook titles of our choice, informed by usage statistics, to be purchased and added to our collection permanently.

Cambridge UP includes a number of series in the EBA package and also categorises ebooks as follows:

  1.  Books for Research
  2.  Coursebooks
  3.  Cambridge Library Collections
  4.  Textbooks – this category is excluded from the EBA subscription although a few Legacy Textbooks may be included

See below for a list of publisher partners

New titles are added each month to the EBA collection and the surest way to check whether we have a particular title (if you know the publisher) is to search the publisher platform.

Search UVic Libraries catalogue if you are unsure of the publisher.

Although we have access to the complete Cambridge University Press EBA collection, unfortunately this does not mean that we have access to everything that Cambridge UP has published.

Some exclusions apply. The most notable exclusions are titles deemed textbooks by the publisher. 

If you have any questions, please contact us at We're here to help.
