A-6 Here Today, Gone Tomorrow?
Future of print periodicals session Here Today, Gone Tomorrow? (A-6) covered examples of libraries that are using online access to journal literature through HeinOnline primarily and no longer receiving or retaining print versions of these journals. "Just in Time" service seems well-excepted by patrons generally. Financial pressures and space pressures pushing libraries in this direction. Good points about LONG-Term access needs during questions, which were not really covered during the session. Also a desire for best practices from maybe AALL during questions. Should we be concerned about driving law reviews out of business? (Plug for TS-SIS Serials Committee meeting!)
