Brill Evidence Based Acquisition

Brill’s Evidence Select (Evidence-Based Acquisitions)

Brill EBA list of books (updated January 2021)

  • Access is set up for the period of the agreement against a predetermined budget
  • Content can be tailored by subject areas and years of publication
  • After the predetermined period, E-Books are acquired in perpetuity based on usage reports

EBA is the solution for:

  • Libraries who want to be fixed, predictable costs for ebook expenditure from year to year = budget control
  • Libraries who want to offer instant access to the maximum pool of titles – and the maximum convenience – for their users
  • Libraries which want to allow their patrons to help shape the collection, but with the librarians still having control
