Library Journal Acquisitions - Rising Costs

Library Journal Acquisitions - Rising Costs

As noted at the Information Today article by by Paula J. Hane at Cornell and Other University Libraries to Cancel Elsevier Titles, the increasing cost of professional journals is leading universities to reconsider their library spending policies.

More about this issue can also be read about at the following sites:

Crisis in Scholarly Communication - Iowa State University
Outlook Online - Ohio University
VCU - Virginia Commonwealth University
University of Texas - at Austin, General Libraries
Data and Statistics - Boston College
Issues in Scholarly Publishing - Stanford University School of Medicine

The cost problems discussed at those links are leading to new unique solutions, e.g.:
