Join Consortia Canada

Value in Membership

By working collaboratively, library consortia use a “strength in numbers” approach to establish optimal pricing for electronic resources that support learners and researchers across the country. Consortia Canada welcomes Canadian consortia that represent all library types (public, post-secondary, health, special, and K-12) to join.

Membership Criteria

Consortia Canada members must:

  • Be operational as a library consortium in Canada (formal or informal).
  • Embrace the Consortia Canada philosophy of providing affordable, universally accessible information to licensed content that support learners and researchers across the country.
  • Have adequate staffing and infrastructure to convey Consortia Canada communications (e.g. information on resource offers and renewals) to members so that decisions can be made in a timely manner.
  • If willing to take the lead on resource offers and/or renewals, have appropriate staff to work with the vendor and to communicate with fellow consortia.
