    To provide the specialized libraries with the growing body of content being delivered by desLibris in subject fields, “Subject Collection” entitlements are now available. 

    These are subscriptions which deliver new Public Document titles to subscriber accounts on a daily basis as the titles are harvested. 

    Each priced at the annual subscription rate of $500, each collection is licensed for 3 concurrent users per account. (To gain full unlimited multiple-user access, the complete Documents collection should be chosen.) 

    While subject collections include public documents only, books of interest may be added by purchasing perpetual access licenses.
