As part of our mandate to ensure equitable access to collections and e-resources for public libraries, OLS negotiates discounts for e-resources, and manages shared e-collections of downloadable materials. We also offer discounts on a range of other products relevant to public libraries.


OLS negotiate the licensing of digital content on a province-wide basis, for products that reflect a wide variety of subject areas and patron interests


We manage two shared collections - downloadable ebooks, audiobooks, and videos through OverDrive and a French-language eBook collection

Collective Purchasing Agreements

Libraries can access many different purchasing offers, ranging from discounts for library supplies and furnishings, to programmable robots and 3D printers

E-Resources Ordering

  • Provincial and Supplemental Licensing programs will open in September.  Please see our E-resources page for dates and details.
  • Provincial Licensing products will be the same this year, but libraries still need to place orders for all products, even if purchasing the same products as last year.
