OCLC's new Journal Licensing Program offers one-stop shopping for electronic subscriptions, access and archiving of titles available through the OCLC FirstSearch Electronic Collections Online service.

Now institutions can subscribe to the electronic version of journals available through Electronic Collections Online directly with BCR at the same time they open or renew their access accounts. BCR will quote pricing and provide license terms for electronic journals, process subscription orders and provide libraries with consolidated billing for subscriptions, access and archiving.

Electronic Collections Online allows libraries to search across hundreds of journals from many different publishers, using a single interface and access point. Titles are available in many different subject areas. More information, including a list of available journals is found at
