When the Wolf Finally Arrives: Big Deal Cancelations in North American Libraries - The Scholarly Kitchen

lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-05-01

Summary:

"Despite all the ambiguities, one thing does seem clear to me: the Big Deal is no longer sacred. My prediction is that two converging factors will lead to a growing number of Big Deal cancelations in academic libraries: the continued downward trend in collection budgets, and the growing number of libraries that are demonstrating by example that you can cancel your Big Deal and live to tell the tale."
