More Information on the Canadian National Site Licensing Project

The initial focus of CNSLP is to license a limited but high-impact portfolio of fulltext electronic journals and databases, primarily in science, technology, and health-related disciplines.  The current contracts with the vendors are for three years, ending in 2003.

CNSLP is jointly funded by the participating institutions and the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, whose goal it is to foster research at Canadian Universities and other institutions.  The project involves 64 institutions of higher education that have come together to leverage Canadian universities' buying power and influence in the information marketplace, and negotiate favourable deals with vendors.  The total amount spent on contracts with the vendors is approximately $46 million.
