While budget constraints have grown tighter over the recent years, academic librarians nationwide remain steadfast in their commitment to providing their patrons with access to the widest possible range of content. For large academic libraries and consortia whose licenses are particularly robust, the administrative burden of renewals--reconciling title lists, deciding what to keep and what to drop, grappling with unpredictable price increases—often feels in conflict with their own institutional goals.

After several years spent in consult with librarians around the world, Wiley launched the Database Model in 2014 to address the complications and cumbersome nature of its previous journal licensing model. For institutions and consortia that already had access to the majority of Wiley journals, the Database Model was designed to offer better return on investment by offering increased access, predictable spend and reduced administrative costs.

This session will focus on the experience of several librarians who are using Wiley’s all-inclusive Database Model as well as other publisher’s similar models. Attendees can expect to hear about the impact of all-inclusive models and the advantages and challenges of this type of model vs. other types of big deals.

Additional time for questions and an open discussion with the audience will also ensure engagement and facilitate lively discussion.
