We are discussing how best to determine exactly what period of access we are supposed to have for each of our electronic titles.  The thought has been put forth to contact the publisher - that publishers would have a set period for all of their titles and we could go by that information.


Skeptic that I am, I am a) not trusting publishers actually do have such a policy at the ready, and b) that they do not change it at will.  I am willing, and hoping, actually, to be wrong.


So - looking to the cumulated wisdom of Serialsters - any information, thoughts, experience you are willing to share.  If you have set about determining that sort of information, how have you done it, and how successful have you been?  Time involved?  Other thoughts?
