Abstract

The Consortium of University Libraries of Catalonia (CBUC) manages several cooperative programmes such as the union catalogue, the inter-library loan service, a table of contents (TOC) database, a digital library,a training programme and a doctoral thesis server. All these programmes are interrelated in their operation so it is easy to go from one service to another.
One of the co-operative actions that is being carried out by the CBUC is the licensing and organization of electronic journals. The Technical Office of the CBUC co-ordinates or directly carries out the selection, negotiation and licensing of the resources of the digital library. It currently offers access to 5,440 electronic journals. Though it receives subsidies, most of the subscription costs are paid by the libraries themselves.
