Presentation THREE

Rick Fought will talk about pay per view article access:

Two years ago we were looking at reducing our electronic journal collection due to our budget not keeping up with the inflation of journal costs. This would have marked the fourth year in a row that we were forced to reduce the collection. We identified journals that were underperforming and had a high cost-per-use. In an effort to avoid cutting important journals, even if their cost-per-use was high, we decided to look into enter into a pay-per-view agreement with Wiley Publishing, the publisher of many of the titles we were considering cutting. After analyzing our statistics, including turn-aways for journals we did not currently subscribe to, we decided to give pay-per-view a chance. We cut approximately 25 Wiley titles and used the money we saved to purchase a number of tokens to use for pay-per-view for Wiley titles (approximately 700 in-scope titles). We are now in our second year of the pay-per-view program and it has been a big success. Faculty and students are excited about the tremendous increase in access to relevant online journals and we have been able to accomplish this with only a modest increase to our pay-per-view budget. As an added benefit, we are able to check our usage of both subscribed Wiley titles and those we access through pay-per-view, and if a title is being heavily used through pay-per-view we can add that title to our subscriptions, conversely we can cut Wiley titles that are underperforming and would be cheaper to provide access to via pay-per-view. It is our small version of patron driven acquisitions.
