Seeking the New Normal: Periodicals Price Survey 2010

Do you want to hear the latest about journals pricing trends? The annual Periodicals Pricing Survey is always of great interest to all constituents of the library community due to the ever-hot debate on journal pricing. Please join us to hear from the authors of the recent article “Seeking the New Normal: Periodicals Price Survey 2010” published in Library Journal in April 2010. The panelists will share how the survey data was compiled and their thoughts regarding future trends. We will provide ample time for audience participation to encourage a lively discussion.
