Consortial Purchasing: The U.S. Experience With Electronic Products

Author:

Julia A. Gammon

Abstract

Rising costs and decreased purchasing power have forced libraries to share resources to meet the informational needs of their students and faculty. The incorporation of new technologies has allowed for the creation of consortia across large geographic areas; these technical advances provide a robust basis for greatly expanded access by users to library materials. This paper focuses on the U.S. experience, specifically with OhioLINK, the state-wide academic consortium of fifty-six libraries.
