Kingma, Bruce R.
Library Trends, v45 n3 p518-30 Win 1997
Using data on the cost of interlibrary loan, journal prices, and journal use, this article presents an economic analysis of the SUNY (State University of New York) Express consortium and the potential savings from consortium delivery of scholarly articles and joint collections development. Concludes that while considerable savings are possible using consortium delivery, savings from joint collection development are small. (PEN)
