Institutional Pricing 

    Canadian Electronic Library is available on the desLibris platform by subscription.


    The “Complete Collection” includes all public documents and those books made available by their publishers for subscription licensing. New titles are added daily to the collection, which in mid 2019 numbers over 80,000 titles. More information on the Complete Collection here
