Library fee‐based information services: financial considerations Journal Article uri icon



  • Fee‐based services in libraries offer research and document delivery services to non���primary clientele on a cost‐recovery basis. Highlights services at the University of Colorado, Boulder, Rice University and Purdue University. Explores the major financial considerations involved in starting a new fee‐based service, including planning, staffing, pricing and marketing. Relates several special opportunities to which the libraries could not have responded without having had an existing fee‐based service with experienced staff in place. Also examines Internet opportunities.
