Donation of Individual Subscriptions Carol Jones 24 Apr 1992 20:13 UTC

A faculty member has asked why we do not actively solicit donations of
journal subscriptions from faculty who can subscribe at the individual rate
rather than expending library funds at the higher library/institutional rate.
While several questions arise from this scenario, has an arrangement of this
type been challenged in court?  Has there been previous discussion on the list?
