Collection Management Forum: Alternatives to the Big Deal: Implementing Pay Per View Collection Management Forum/Update Dallas Convention Center
D168
Description :

Large aggregated packages of journals that publishers offer to libraries for hefty subscription fees, otherwise known as the Big Deal, have become commonplace in libraries. While they offer the advantage of purchasing large numbers of titles at a discount, librarians have become increasingly disenchanted with them because of their high cost and the inability to add or drop titles from the package. Pay per view subscription models offer an alternative that allows librarians to pay only for those articles that their users view. This program examines the pay per view model from the perspective of both the publisher and of librarians who have implemented it. The advantages and disadvantages of per view are discussed along with an exploration of where the pay per view model is headed and what its long term prospects might be.
