    Purchase includes perpetual access to 548 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 Gender Studies titles at a discount.

    Annual lease provides one calendar year of access (January to December 2017) to the Gender Studies collection. For 2017, this includes 548 titles. To maintain access after 2017, libraries will need to purchase the collection or renew the lease.

    Lease to Own

    Libraries that lease the Gender Studies collection for five years (sequential or nonsequential) are automatically upgraded to perpetual access to the collection.
