EBA: Evidence-Based Acquisitions eBooks

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

Wiley oBooks

Wiley Online Books (oBooks)

Subscription renewed annually


Alumni access: No

Exclusions: Textbooks 


UVic Libraries has access to the complete Wiley EBA collection. Wiley uses the term Usage Based Collection Management (UBCM) for their evidence-based acquisition product but the same principles apply. We have unlimited access to the titles available in the package and at the end of the subscription period UVic Libraries purchases oBook titles of our choice, informed by usage statistics, to be added to our collection permanently.

The Wiley EBA comprises titles from a number of publisher partners, including Wiley, Wiley-Blackwell, and some professional society presses such as Wiley-IEEE Press.

For further details about the publisher partners, see below for the list of publisher partners available. 

Although we have access to the complete Wiley EBA oBook package, unfortunately this not mean that we have access to everything that Wiley has published and some exclusions apply. The most notable exclusions are titles deemed textbooks by the publisher and in the Wiley case, we only have access to online books (oBooks) and not their eBooks. 

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