Direct subscriptions Laura Milliman 24 May 2004 18:41 UTC

I am new to this list. Would like to know about feasibility of direct
subscriptions. I have searched the archives, but without standard subject
headings it is difficult to gather all the information in one place. Are
there any published articles or chapters that deal with this issue?
I understand that direct subscriptions would not be practical for larger
libraries. However, we only have 165 current subscriptions. Would dealing
with this small amount of titles make a difference?  Are there types of
titles, such as monographs or newspapers for which ordering direct might
make a difference?
Thank you.
