Public, Staff, Students

Speaker: Hanna James

Series: CityLIS “After Hours” Research Seminar Series

Abstract

In this session, we will take a top-level view of the financial aspect of libraries, specifically in the UK Higher Education setting. We will look at the spending trends and how institutions combine demands to gain purchasing power in the process of information resources acquisition. Through understanding the budget make-up, a library worker can more effectively articulate the value (≠ cost) of an academic library.

About the speaker
