    Well.... yes. Always have been. One of the fundamental reasons that academic institutions set up libraries in the first place was to pool institutional funds and space in order to provide students and faculty access to content that they can’t afford to buy for themselves (and don’t have room

    FWIW, if anyone is interested in what academic libraries look like these days, I'll offer up that Christine Wolff-Eisenberg and I have gathered a pretty robust dataset (800+ of the 3000+ institutions of higher ed in the USA) with live dashboards and reports. We've also published 3 analyses of

    The real slowdown is likely to be big cuts in research funding in a long term depressed economy. But then a lot of journals may go under as well, so it might balance out. Less of everything. Very sad. David On Mar 30, 2020, at 9:08 PM, Joe Esposito wrote: This was what I had
