Access on a Budget: Striking a Healthly Balance Between Database Subscriptions and Interlibrary Loan Services Poster session McCormick Place Convention Center
Hall A, Exhibit Floor
Description :

It was once stated that libraries could not afford to buy every book published. The same case can be made for online journals. Interlibrary Loan is not a replacement for journal subscriptions, but is it necessary to have subscriptions to every database when the use does not merit the cost? Libraries must come to the realization that they cannot subscribe to every full-text database and must make decisions on what should be included in the collection and what should be left to interlibrary loan to fulfill. The poster will highlight the value of interlibrary loan in relation to the rising cost of database subscriptions and the desire to provide rapid access to patrons. The poster will present statistics data taken from current database costs compared to operating costs of Interlibrary Loan department from the University of Southern Mississippi.
