Hello--New to this list, so apologies in advance if this is either a question that has been answered many time; has an obvious answer, or somehow seems a bit nutty..But: Wondering--is there a source, site, mechanism etc. where librarians can discover what other libraries of similar size have negotiated with an information vendor, so that there is some guideline to know a range of what one's license "should" cost? Kind of like a Consumer Reports for the automobile manufacturer price (though I know with this it would be harder as each license is customized) So--is there any official or informal place where this is published or available? Or do librarians informally try to share this? Are there ethical considerations when undertaking this kind of activity? Thank you!
