The Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) is pleased to announce a pilot project with Wiley to give libraries access to the publisher’s nearly 24,000 ebook titles as part of a shared evidence-based acquisition (EBA) program.  

Between May 1, 2023 and April 30, 2024, nineteen Ontario academic libraries are taking part in the pilot. Once the project concludes, based on usage statistics over the one-year period, titles will be purchased and form a shared collection of ebooks for participating OCUL libraries.
