This program will provide information about how Mississippi State University Libraries deconstructed two of their "big deal" eJournal packages and reverted back to individual subscriptions. The presenters will explain the reasons why the "big deal" packages were no longer viable for MSU and the methods we used to deconstruct two of our largest and most used publisher packages. The new individual subscription model takes effect January 2012, therefore, the presenters will have 6 months of tangible consequences, comments, and repercussions to present and discuss with the audience.
Mary Ann Jones and Derek Marshall, Mississippi State University
