Subject: [SERIALST] articles with serials cost statistics

Hello.  I was wondering if anyone knows of any recent articles on
serials subscription costs for different kinds of libraries.  I thought
I had seen some in Library Journal awhile back, but I can't find
anything the LISTA database.  I have been searching for terms like
serials crisis, serials prices, serials wars, expenditures and serials.
Of course, I have located the ARL Statistics, but I was looking for
information that applied to public, school, and other types of
libraries.  I have also been to the ALA, PLA, and ACRL websites looking
for statistics like these without any luck.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thank you.
