ALCTS/SS Discussion group on Journal pricing at Midwinter Steve Corrsin 09 Jan 2001 17:02 UTC

The ALCTS Serials Section Discussion Group on Journal Pricing in Libraries
(better known as the ALCTS/SS/DG/JPL) invites you to attend its meeting at
Midwinter. Our timely topic will be "The (Un)Logic of Ejournal Pricing
Packages: Free Electronic Information... At a Cost." Our speakers are
Marilyn Geller, Information Management consultant, and Matthew J. Price,
Manager, Product Marketing, American Chemical Society, Publications

The original concept behind this topic emerged from a request by my
Library's administration to find out "exactly how much we pay" for
electronic resources -- not just individual e-journals, data bases, etc.,
but also for the electronic portion of those "online allegedly free with
print" packages.

Solutions to this knotty puzzle may also be announced from the floor.

Please join us! Renaissance Mayflower, Cabinet Room, Sat Jan 13, 2-4 PM.
