Publisher Journal Packages
These are one-price-for-all-content packages. The package journals show low use for two-thirds or more of the content. Cost per use for both packages below is approximately $13, compared to $0.19 per use for JSTOR, the most cost effective package. The two packages planned for cancellation cost Appalachian more than $300,000 per year:
|Springer Journal Package||View title list |
|Wiley/Blackwell Package||View title list |
Access to Content Lost Due to Budget Reductions
Articles contained in the canceled publisher packages (Big Deals) are available through the Library's ILLiad interlibrary loan service . Average turnaround time for articles is 4 days, with most articles arriving electronically. An interlibrary loan costs the Library approximately $8 in non-staff expenses.
