Little things about Scientitic Watch and Information Professionnals

Back to the future! Libraries Vs Databases

leave a comment »

In reaction of a 120 percent increase of its Web of Science
subscription, a Canadian Library suggested a collaborative revolution:

The librarian estimates that there are some 40,000 science journals
published every year; if 3,000 libraries pitched in, he calculates,
“then each of them would have to index 15 journal titles.

Instead of paying money to commercial publishers for products such as Web of Science, libraries could put their resources to work indexing the scholarly literature themselves“.

To become a serious competitor of Thomson + Elsevier?!
