Subject: 1998 Foreign and Domestic Periodicals Price Index for Canada

The following is an excerpt from Faxon Canada's 1998 Foreign and
Domestic Periodicals Price Index for Canada.

Faxon Canada's annual Price Index, which measures the effect of inflation
on prices charged for subscriptions, reports an average price inflation
of 13.49% for 1998 subscriptions over 1997 prices. To some extent
Canadian libraries are always affected by foreign exchange fluctuations.
This year's Price Index analysis examines how significant that impact
can be  and how Canadian libraries could have experienced an inflationary
rate of 10.93%, 2.5% lower than the reported rate.

Other highlights of the report include:

* A retrospective look at the subject categories with the Highest
  Average Subscription Prices since the inception of the Price Index
  in 1989.

* A detailed presentation of the subject categories with the Highest
  Percent Inflation.

* An examination of the impact of foreign exchange on Canadian serial
  inflation rates.

* A summary of Faxon Canada's Price Projections for 1999.

Faxon Canada's Foreign and Domestic Price Index will be published
 in the upcoming May issue of Feliciter, the journal of the Canadian
Library Association.
