We're under a big space crunch here, plus our staff would like electronic access to our subscriptions. I'd like to switch every subscription over to electronic format, but I have heard that most publishers will not allow a library to use the electronic format for interlibrary loan--Is that the general understanding among you folks, or are there particular publishers that give you carte blanche regardless of format? Accordingly, in order to comply with electronic licenses and to deal with our space limitations, if we are unable to use electronic subscriptions for ILL, I was thinking of subscribing to both electronic and microfilm. Can I purchase a microfilm version, skipping the print altogether, or do most publishers insist that you purchase print and replace it with microfilm? I don't want to have to buy the same journal in three formats--we don't have that kind of money. Is it ok to use microfilm for ILL if I haven't bought the print version?
