E-Journals And The Big Deal: A Review Of The Literature, Cindy Sjoberg 2017 San Jose State University

E-Journals And The Big Deal: A Review Of The Literature, Cindy Sjoberg

SLIS Student Research Journal

Faced with shrinking budgets and increased subscription prices, many academic libraries are seeking ways to reduce the cost of e-journal access. A common target for cuts is the “Big Deal,” or large bundled subscription model, a term coined by Kenneth Frazier in a 2001 paper criticizing the effects of the Big Deal on the academic community. The purpose of this literature review is to examine issues related to reducing e-journal costs, including criteria for subscription retention or cancellation, decision-making strategies, impacts of cancellations, and other options for e-journal content provision. Commonly used criteria for decision-making include usage statistics, overlap analysis ...

This session will explain how digitization projects have evolved at Minnesota State University, Mankato.

We will also share information about our new institutional repository. This session is aimed at organizations in the early stages of their digitization efforts and those that want to see how others do it.


How Could An Open Access Scholarly Journal System Look? A Scenario Analysis, Maurits van der Graaf, Leo Waaijers 2017 Pleiade Management & Consultancy

How Could An Open Access Scholarly Journal System Look? A Scenario Analysis, Maurits Van Der Graaf, Leo Waaijers

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

Ralf Schimmer’s blog “Making the moves for large scale transition toward Open Access” makes the case to achieve such a transition by means of offsetting deals. The urgency for such a transition is emphasized by the recently announced ambition of the EU to have “Open Access to scientific publications as the best option by default by 2020”i. This should be done “in a cost-effective way, without embargoes, or with as short as possible embargoes”. In this blog, we explore and analyse the scenario whereby this transition will be brought about by successful offsetting deals, meaning that ultimately all ...


Can Scientists And Their Institutions Become Their Own Open Access Publishers?, Karen Shashok 2017 Translator and Editorial Consultant, Granada, Spain

Can Scientists And Their Institutions Become Their Own Open Access Publishers?, Karen Shashok

Copyright, Fair Use, Scholarly Communication, etc.

This article offers a personal perspective on the current state of academic publishing, and posits that the scientific community is beset with journals that contribute little valuable knowledge, overload the community’s capacity for high-quality peer review, and waste resources. Open access publishing can offer solutions that benefit researchers and other information users, as well as institutions and funders, but commercial journal publishers have influenced open access policies and practices in ways that favor their economic interests over those of other stakeholders in knowledge creation and sharing. One way to free research from constraints on access is the diamond route ...

‘The Willing Women Are Standing Waiting Now’: British Women, The Second World War, And The Women’S Library At The London School Of Economics And Political Science, Erin Doerner 2016 San Jose State University

‘The Willing Women Are Standing Waiting Now’: British Women, The Second World War, And The Women’S Library At The London School Of Economics And Political Science, Erin Doerner

SLIS Connecting

Since the end of the Second World War some 70 years ago, research and scholarship featuring wartime contributions of the average British citizenhasfocused largely on men's experiences of combat, the various roles of government agencies, or the assumed viability and tenacity of political and military leaders. The role of gender in the experience of war was often a side-note, not a focus of research. Since the 1960s, and more frequently since the late 1980s, a new wartime perspective has begun to be documented and explored in academic and literary scholarship - that of British women.

This study examines primary materials ...


Core Values: Intellectual Freedom And Privacy In Public Libraries, Stephanie A. Evans 2016 University of Southern Mississippi

Core Values: Intellectual Freedom And Privacy In Public Libraries, Stephanie A. Evans

SLIS Connecting

With the passing of the USA Patriot Act in 2001 following the events of 9/11, libraries on the national scale have had to staunchly defend issues of privacy and confidentially more-so than ever before. Evidence of this lies not only in statements within the ALA’s Resolution on the USA PATRIOT Act and Libraries but also in other core documents which guide policy development in public libraries (ALA 2005). Intellectual Freedom and privacy are two of the major issues addressed and protected by the American Library Association through the Office of Intellectual Freedom and the Library Bill of Rights ...
