“Pay-Per-View” of eJournal Articles: A New
Model for Electronic Resources
Tian Zhang, University
Maureen Weicher, University Libraries
As the scholarly literature has moved online, students and
researchers have become increasingly concerned with accessing
individual articles rather than entire journals. Recently the
Library has explored using pay-per-view (PPV) of individual
articles to supplement (and sometimes replace) individual journal
subscriptions. Join us for a discussion of how PPV (a token system)
can be used to provide access to a wider range of electronic
resources. We’ll also touch on some “behind-the-scenes”
issues that need to be addressed to make it work.
Lunch will be served.
Tuesday, February 21
12:15 to 1:40 p.m.
Library room 110 in the back of the
Commons, Queens Campus
