Hi all, My question seems to be coming at an opportune time as we're all dealing with the issues raised by the Elsevier pricing structure changes and its impact on our collections. First of all, very generally, how are libraries now going to look at the issue of moving titles from a print collection to an electronic-only collection? Here at East Carolina University, we were beginning to look at Synergy, and have been looking at Wiley as well; however, because of Elsevier's move, I'm very hesitant about the potential damage to the integrity of our collection. What is everyone else doing? We are also seriously considering acquiring Annual Reviews' full text database, but according to my information, there is no pertpetual access available. If a vendor/publisher does not offer perpetual access, are libraries then maintaining the print volumes while simultaneously paying for the online version? Has anyone had any success with negotiating for such access from AR? Replies can be sent to me and I'll summarize for the list. Thanks for your help, Stefanie DuBose Serials Librarian Collection Development, Joyner Library East Carolina University Greenville, NC 27858-4353 (p) 252-328-2598 (f) 252-328-4834 firstname.lastname@example.org
