Cost Increases for Scholarly Research Materials: Change, Challenge, and Potential
Rapidly rising costs in scholarly publishing are a financial challenge which impact the Salve Regina University community’s access to paid research resources such as the article databases, ebook collections, and ejournals available through McKillop Library. A rapidly evolving publishing environment, along with frugal budget allocations necessitated by a tumultuous landscape in higher education, has required contraction of McKillop Library’s materials budget and an on-going process of prioritization and evaluation of our research resources. The recent rise of open access publishing provides one potential alternative path forward.
