UK Pilot Site Licence Initiative: Is it Guiding Libraries Away from Disaster On the Rocks of Price Rises?

Author:

Frederick J Friend

Abstract

The article examines the impact of the recent HEFCE journal pilot site licence on library budgets. The background to the current journals funding crisis is examined - including the role of government in influencing library budgets. The extent of the impact of cash savings is discussed as is the enhanced access to electronic journals. The outstanding question which cannot be answered, as yet, is whether there will be any long-term benefits from the pilot scheme.
