"Discontinuing Big Deal Publisher Packages: Perspectives and Processes," a meeting presented by the ALCTS Continuing Resources Section College & Research Libraries Interest Group

Date: Sunday, January 22, 2012

Time:   8:30-10:00 am

Location:   DCC – D227

As budgets tighten and as title-focused and demand-driven acquisition models gain in popularity, conventional 'big deal' publisher packages are falling under increased scrutiny. Are these packages a good investment? What processes are libraries using to make decisions about publisher package renewals/cancellations? How does the process of a 'big deal' discontinuation work? And--perhaps most importantly--what are the impacts?

This meeting featured two presentations:

  • "Big Deals: Where Do We Go From Here?" by Beth Bernhardt, Electronic Resources Librarian at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro
  • "Leaving the Big Deal: The University of Oregon Experience" David Fowler, Head, Licensing, Grants Administration & Collection Analysis at the University of Oregon
