Abstract

This article presents an economic analysis of the SUNY Express consortium and the potential savings from consortium delivery of scholarly articles and joint collection development. An economic model of consortium collection development is presented. Data on the cost of interlibrary loan, journal prices, and journal use are provided to determine the potential savings of the SUNY Express consortium. While considerable savings are possible using consortium delivery of scholarly journal articles, savings from joint collection development are small.
