New Methods for Extending Access: Implications for Publishers and Library Collections & Services

As libraries consider different ways to manage their collection budgets, alternate acquisitions models are being considered, including demand driven acquisitions (DDA), evidence-based management (EBM) options, and reliance on Inter-Library Loan (ILL) and document supply (meaning purchasing or acquiring on demand). There are long and short term implications for both publishers and libraries. These include developing new relationships with vendors/suppliers and assessing when any of these solutions are appropriate and what the consequences of such choices mean. Library users increasingly expect nearly immediate access and that usually implies either ILL from a consortia partner or a commercial vendor that can supply the needed item quickly and cost-effectively. Reviewing usage data provides an indicator of need that may translate into a future subscription or acquisition or determine what long term solution is best for ongoing needs. Libraries continue to explore and calculate how to cover these costs either as fee-driven incurred by user, restricted to specific user communities (just faculty, and graduate students), and whether they are covered as part of the overall collection management costs. The increasing role of Open Access generates additional complexity and both publishers/providers and libraries must determine how to distinguish between OA content and non-OA content. Collection development models of balancing ownership, subscriptions with and without perpetuity, OA plus new opportunities for extending access at a more macro level with different providers reflects major changes for all partners in this shifting paradigm. Likely to stimulate active discussion about implications for library collections and the changing models offered by publishers.
