have been licensing books to libraries through our services since 2005.
We define a "qualified Canadian publisher" as a member of one of these groups:
After your application is accepted you'll receive login instructions and a Publisher Dashboard where you'll find tools for submitting books, setting licensing terms, getting usage reports and using other services.
All copyright materials (books) submitted are included in the desLibris Preview site. Distribution of complete books to paying clients (libraries and individuals) through desLibris and Canadian Electronic Library is done under license and royalties are paid on sales.
All desLibris library licensing is optional and title-specific. Publishers may choose only the licensing options they consider appropriate; they may add or withdraw titles from distribution at any time without notice. And they may open accounts without electing any licensing in order to take advantage of the premium services we offer.
