Study Cites Long-Term Cost Savings from Electronic Journals
Electronic journals are fast replacing print in many academic and research libraries. And at most libraries, it seems inevitable that this format transition will run to completion. What effects will these developments have on library operations and nonsubscription expenditures?
This question is addressed in a new report from CLIR, titled The Nonsubscription Side of Periodicals: Changes in Library Operations and Costs between Print and Electronic Formats. The report was written by Roger C. Schonfeld, Donald W. King, Ann Okerson, and Eileen Gifford Fenton. It is available free on the site in PDF format.
