Toll access Formula to share costs 42. BDC growth 43. Something forbidden but that everybody wants ... What is it? Quiz 1 Big Deals 44. Big Deal criticisms

  • It causes price increases
  • Its unsustainable
  • You buy what you dont want
  • It encourages monopolies
  • Its a librarians trick to go against OA
  • Etc.

45. Critics to Big Deals

  • Unused information is purchased
  • Prices go up
  • Agreements cannot be reached
  • Encourages publishers concentration (in few commercial publishing companies)
  • No room for smaller publishers
  • Unsustainable model

46. 47. 48. Why does everybody want it?

  • Because
    • access to the whole publishers e-journals collection has created very complete information environments
    • its been achieved at an affordable cost and, sometimes, with new money
    • non previously subscribed e-journals are used, when accessible
    • interdisciplinary landscape of sciences makes it necessary

49. Benefits

  • Much more information
  • More usages (also for non previous subscribed journals)
  • More money from administration
  • A lot of users satisfaction
  • Equity in access between big and small libraries

50. Difficulties

  • All x All, vs. Some x Some
  • How to decide
  • And
    • Cost division
      • Cost division
        • Cost division
          • Cost division

51. The challenge: expanding Big Deals

  • Now only universities and BC
  • But other institutions need them also:
    • Research cent e rs
    • Hospitals
    • Public administration services
  • And others will ask in the future, like:
      • Scientific societies
      • Public libraries
      • School libraries (teachers)
      • ...

52. Institutional repositories (cooperative)

  • Advantages:
    • Collective decisions = protection against errors
    • Consolidation and prestige
      • + documents+ accesses+ visibility
    • Once processes have been set up, time can be invested in submitting more documents

53. IRs CBUC

  • Cooperative:
    • Sharing software
    • Sharing procedures
    • Sharing experiences
    • Sharing difficulties
    • Learning together
