Examining the economics of bloc payments for e-journals - new report now available
firstname.lastname@example.org's bookmarks 2012-07-31
Abstract: This report is based on an analysis of the practicability and the effect of different models for allocating costs of journal and other digital information licences between HEIs where journal collections or other information products have been licensed by a "bloc" of institutions for a single all-in price – the so-called "Big Deal". This type of transaction is contemplated for core resources that have widespread application in HE. It can operate at a national level, or on a regional basis, or for groups of academic libraries with a common interest in a particular discipline.
