    18. 18. Value & Economic Impact Analysis • ADS data and services are important in users’ academic, private and commercial research, heritage management, teaching and learning. • 53% of users said that not being able to access ADS data and services would have a severe or major impact on their work. • Users realise significant efficiency benefits from ADS data and services in terms of time and effort (e.g. from it providing a one- stop point of access, because the data would be expensive and/or beyond their capacity to collect themselves, etc.). • It is clear from user responses that they place a considerable value on their ability to access ADS data and services, although many have a limited capacity to pay for such services. 18
