Title: The big deal and the damage done
Author: Crawford, Walt
Description: "When academic libraries adopted the Big Deal and other bundles of serials, it seemed like a win-win-win situation: Publishers had predictable revenues, libraries gained some price relief, users gained access to many more serials. But Big Deals have damaged humanities and other fields that rely on monographs and the ability of libraries to do everything else--and in the long run, they're probably not sustainable anyway. This study looks at U.S. academic libraries by size, sector and Carnegie classification, showing spending changes from 2000 through 2010 for current serials, books and other acquisitions, and everything else; in the process, it shows the damage done."--Lulu.com
