  • Purchase the Collection

    Purchase includes perpetual access to over 600 Gender Studies e-books. In subsequent years, purchasing libraries will have the option to "top up" their subject collection by buying the year's new batch of relevant titles.

    Annual Lease

    Annual lease provides one calendar year of access (January to December 2019) to the Gender Studies collection. For 2019, this includes over 600 titles. To maintain access after 2019, libraries may purchase the collection or renew the lease.

    Lease to Own

    Libraries that lease the Gender Studies collection for five consecutive years are automatically upgraded to perpetual access to the collection from that year back.
