Create an EPIC account

Create an EPIC account so you can see EPIC pricing and sub-licence agreements. Your EPIC account is part of your National Library website account.

Who can sign up for an EPIC account?

You can only sign up for access to EPIC pricing and sub-licence information if you are an employee of a New Zealand based library and information service and are responsible for purchasing e-resources.

If you are a school looking for EPIC resources you do not need to join EPIC. A range of EPIC resources are freely available to all New Zealand schools through the Ministry of Education membership.
