Subject: Access to Journals and Academic Literature Dear Henry, Henry Schaffer wrote, "Some institutional libraries provide an opportunity for affiliation with them, often by joining a library member association for a nominal fee, and then provide online access to their collection, and sometimes borrowing privileges." Could you please tell us more? Some digital information sources that can be accessed through institutional libraries also permit individual subscriptions. For example the Oxford English Dictionary is currently GBP 90 per year for individuals, but usually GBP 215 for individuals. An individual J-Stor subscription costs USD 199 for unlimited online reading but the service provides only 120 .pdf downloads per year. Proquest dissertations and theses in .pdf format cost USD 41 each, as contrasted with complete access with free downloads through a library. These prices are high, functionality is limited, and one must subscribe to different packages to get many current journals. An individual could never obtain the total number of accessible services that are available through a library digital resource collection. To be able to subscribe to a major institutional library for a modest fee would be worth knowing about for those who do not have access to an institutional library with a digital collection.
