SOLS provides e-resources access through the following programs. Click through to find out more.
  1. Provincial Licensing (Formerly Tier 2) - Once a year, SOLS aggregates orders from libraries for a second tier of products to maximize discounts and expand the resources available to Ontarians. SOLS then invoices libraries.
  2. Supplemental Licensing (Formerly Tier 3) - These  e-resources are offered annually as discounted CPAs (Consortia Purchase Agreements) that libraries order individually. For each product, there is a page with ordering instructions, and information about pricing and trial access.  Many of the offerings are provided via SOLS’ participation in multi-sector consortia such as Consortia Canada.
