Cooperative Purchasing

Electronic resources available to Canadian libraries at a considerable discount

We understand how important it is for you to provide your patrons with the information they're looking for in an easy, affordable and timely fashion.  That's why we work with vendors both large and small around the world to negotiate exceptional pricing on your behalf.

We're pleased to offer high-quality and comprehensive resources that any library would find valuable - and you don't have to be an OCLC member to reap the benefits of our Cooperative Purchasing program.

Cooperative Purchasing makes electronic resources available to libraries in Canada at a considerable discount. Databases available include:

Consortia Canada partners with OCLC in Canada for Electronic Resources. Through this partnership, Consortia Canada members now have access to the high-quality, comprehensive electronic resources available through the Cooperative Purchasing program including such notable databases as Oxford Grove Art and Grove Music, and many more.

We are a worldwide library cooperative, owned, governed and sustained by members since 1967. Our public purpose is a statement of commitment to each other—that we will work together to improve access to the information held in libraries around the globe, and find ways to reduce costs for libraries through collaboration.
