Judging Big Deals: Challenges, Outcomes, and Advice
Glasser, Sarah
Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, v25 n4 p263-276 2013
This article reports the results of an analysis of five Big Deal electronic journal packages to which Hofstra University's Axinn Library subscribes. COUNTER usage reports were used to judge the value of each Big Deal. Limitations of usage statistics are also discussed. In the end, the author concludes that four of the five Big Deals are good deals for Hofstra University, offers suggestions for using usage statistics, and stresses the importance of each library making its own judgment as to the value and sustainability of Big Deal journal packages.
