Journal Consolidation: The Agent's Perspective

Author:

Colin Harrison

Abstract

Journal consolidation means that issues go first to a subscription agent, who can thus save the library much check-in, claiming and even physical processing work, while providing a more reliable and often faster service. The relative costs and benefits are considered for subscribers in different organisations and geographic locations, along with the implications for publishers and especially agents of the growing trend for libraries to outsource some of their traditional functions.
