RE: Sage titles

I completely agree with you . My whine is at the moment with publishers
such as Sage, I don't get a choice.

I believe that the size of the institution and its local technical
infrastructure make these choices extremely variable.  At a mid-size
regional public university we prefer to use a minimum set of
intermediaries or the global publisher sets (e.g. Ideal, Muse) or JSTOR to
provide full image journals ... yes, there are multiple interfaces and,
yes, there are additional costs for the third party support, but it is
support we could not provide to ourselves alone.  At least both publisher
and local library get some commitment to archiving the issues at the third
party host as part of the deal.
