Subscription Pricing

desLibris annual subscriptions are priced by library type and population served. Prices are system-wide, so all libraries in a given school or public library system are covered by the system license. To estimate the cost for your library or system, move the appropriate slider below to a figure approximating your user population.

There are 3 subscription options:

  • All Subscription Content: Both groups below
  • Documents only: Open Access Public Documents
