    Abstract

    Following successful implementation of processes for analysing the cost-per-use of single journal subscriptions, staff at the University of Strathclyde’s Andersonian Library have embarked on projects to create robust analysis for both journal bundle deals and database subscriptions. This session will review the work to date on reviewing journal bundle deals. Case studies will provide context to the discussion of the steps taken, problems encountered and solutions employed in developing a system which can be applied to various multi-title journal subscriptions.
