Electronic journals - the Danish model


Ingbritt Butina


The Danish Electronic Research Library (DEF) has been working since 1996 to promote access to electronic information in Denmark. This paper looks at the past, present and future of electronic journal implementation from the viewpoint of a member of the Danish National Licence Committee, and University Institute Librarian. The issues addressed include the problems of publisher pricing, differential contributions of consortium members, usage statistics, use of agents and central administration, and future consortium plans for financing and acquisition policies.
