Subject: [SERIALST] Price increase reports for online resources

Does anyone know of a report on average price increases for online
databases and periodicals? I'm looking for something to cite as a
national or worldwide trend, like we do the reports in the Bowker
Annual and our vendor reports for print materials, when we're trying
to justify budget requests.
