Great news from ERAC for your BC students and parents!

Thanks to the generosity of our vendor community, ERAC has arranged for BC students and their parents to gain easy home access to the ERAC Online Database Bundle until schools reopen for the new school year. Please share this good news with your students and parents as soon as possible!

Normally accessible only through District-issued login credentials and/or IP authentication, students and parents may now access the full ERAC-licensed WorldBook, EBSCO and Nelson/Gale collections from home using a single, temporary user name and password for all 3 collections.

Districts may share this information with students and their parents via email or via their District and/or school public websites.  Access information to be posted for students and parents is as follows:
ERAC Online Database Bundle

Publisher (Titles) URL or Link Username &

(Primary Search, NoveList K-8 Plus, Middle Search Plus, Academic Search Premier, Business Source Premier,
Canadian Points of View Reference Centre, Canadian Reference Centre, Consumer Health Complete, MasterFILE Premier, NoveList Plus, Professional Development Collection) Username:



(Global Issues in Context)
Gale Global Issues in Context Direct link to database. If asked for Password: BCSTUDENT1


(World Book Kids; WB Student; WB Advanced; WB Discover; L'Encyclopédie Découverte; Early World of Learning, Dramatic Learning; Science Power) Username:


Once schools re-open, the temporary login username/password will no longer work and subscribing districts must revert to their normal access protocols.

We extend our sincere thanks to EBSCO, Nelson Education (Gale) and WorldBook Inc. for their wonderful generosity and flexibility during the unusual circumstances facing our education community this fall.  

ERAC is also working with vendors who provide content for the Canadian Bundle and the Video Bundle to try and arrange similar access to those products for subscribing districts. We’ll provide more on that as soon as it's available.

If you have questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact us at
