Harvard business review survey for brass

  1. 1. Survey on HBR Read-Only Restrictions Summary Results Linda Hauck
  2. 2. Most libraries have NOT gotten a price quote, but among those that have…. • Quoted prices do not follow a rational pattern related to FTE’s – Low FTE respondents got quotes for all price ranges surveyed. – High FTE respondents got quotes for the 10K and over 18K range. – Low price quotes were given to libraries with below 5K, 10-15K and 15-20K FTE libraries – High price quotes were given to libraries with all FTE ranges but more high FTE respondents got high quotes.
  3. 3. Electronic Access Preferences • Any other online access option is preferable to the one going into effect • Unlimited access via a subscription database is favored by most respondents • Electronic journal level access comes in at a close second as the a good access option
  4. 4. Feelings are strong about the issue 110 responses were collected in less than 5 days via distribution on Bus-L 74 respondents contributed comments
  5. 5. Comment themes (not in any order) • Dissatisfaction with communicating new policy and price quotes with libraries • Resignation that HBR is simply maximizing revenue • HBR perceived at greedy, quoted price out of line with business resources. • Recognition that aggregators facing new challenges posed by content providers • Policy perceived as unethical impediment to advancing scholarship • Disapproval of EBSCOhost acquiescence to HBR • Confusion about how libraries can best meet clients requests and comply with latest license restrictions
