Special Collections on desLibris  

These are collections of titles or series from leading Canadian publishers in specialist fields. Several collections are now available, and new collections will be added regularly.

Terms:

  • Annual subscription license
  • All titles are available in fulltext online. See table below for details on each collection.
  • MARC records available

Pricing for each collection is set by the publisher. Like all desLibris subscriptions, pricing is geared to library type. To view pricing for your library, follow these steps:

Current Library Member

New Library Member

Login with your Admin password and go to your Library Dashboard. Using the Manage Account module, select the “Collections” tab and “Add Collection.” This will take you to “Account Upgrades” which will show the Collections available with pricing, allowing you to select one or more. In the next step you will see final pricing and tax extensions. Accepting this will take you to the final step for invoice generation.

Go to Register, enter your order for a Library Membership. On Step 4 of the Registration sequence, you will find Special Collection options and pricing. You may select all or none.

 

Access to titles in Special collections ordered is activated on your library account immediately upon completion of registration or upgrade order.
