Robbins, Sarah; McCain, Cheryl; Scrivener, Laurie
Acquisitions Librarian, v18 n35-36 p75-95 2006
This study examines the holdings of ARL libraries for core reference titles to see if there is a trend towards canceling the print in favor of electronic, and discusses the implications of duplication of titles in both formats. It also looks at the issue within the context of several areas of study including general reference, arts and humanities, social sciences, and sciences. (Contains 6 figures.)
