Canadian Organizations Partner to Promote Canadian eBook Scholarship

By Africa S. Hands

From Ontario Council of University Libraries:

The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) and twelve members of the Association of Canadian University Presses/Association Des Presses Universitaires Canadiennes (ACUP/APUC), in conjunction with eBOUND Canada have partnered to promote and support the availability of Canadian scholarship in ebook format throughout Ontario’s universities.

Innovative in both scope and design, the agreement reached by OCUL, ACUP/APUC and eBOUND Canada will provide access, via OCUL’s Scholars Portal Books platform to a comprehensive collection of over 3,000 ebooks published primarily between 2007-2012. The agreement also has a roll-forward licensing provision and it is anticipated the volume will grow to a total of nearly 4,000 titles by 2014.
