Speaking of Haworth journals....

I was browsing through UNCOVER today, bringing myself up to speed for my
serials class and noticed that the Haworth journal articles all have a
line that says, essentially, that document delivery is not permitted by this
journal and the reader should consult his or her library. Now here at
Drexel, we are undergoing an all-to-common horrendous budget cut, and
hoping to augment our soon-to-be depleted local collection with document
delivery (and of course, paying the copyright charges for documents which,
has we subscribed, would have been within the bounds of fair use, but that's
another story...).  It struck me that perhaps Haworth thinks that if
they don't permit document delivery, then libraries will be forced to carry
the titles in order to make the information available to their patrons. I
am not sure that will happen.  It might be just as likely that, given the
reputation of the publisher and the relative marginality of many titles, the
library will simply cut them.  This should be of concern to authors (are you
listening, Tony Stankus?) who publish regularly in Haworth journals. If
simple publication without readership meets one's needs, then all is well.  If
visibility, citation, making an impact on practice, stimulating scholarship,
etc. is important, then Haworth authors might well be concerned.

RE: Haworth Press Journals and photocopying under 'fair use'

I suggest you have a look at Kenneth D Crews, _Copyright, Fair Use, and the
Challenge for Universities_, Univ of Chicago Press, 1993.
