The article on RoweCom/divine/EBSCO in the Feb print issue of
Information Today was up to date at presstime (about Jan 20)-- and it
referred readers to the site for updated information.
Since then we have posted three NewsBreaks on developments in the
situation -- on Jan. 27, Feb 3, and the most recent on Feb 10

I am working on a NewsBreak at the moment to let readers know the most
recent developments - it should be posted on 2-24.
If anyone has useful information to share, *please* send it my way.

Where in this article do you see a projection of 15%?  I don't see it

In terms of the "who's going to buy Faxon" situation, I do think this
article is now somewhat dated.  It mentions the "planned sessions" to
discuss the situation at the MidWinter meeting in late January, and has
up to date information on EBSCO's plans to buy Faxon (and the fact that
SwetsBlackwell pulled out of those negotiations weeks ago).  If you're
looking for more up to date information, see  This has nothing to do
with price projections, but does have the most recent information I've
seen on EBSCO buying Faxon.  I haven't seen anything yet on price
for 2004.
