Denmark’s Electronic Research Library has completed the 2016 negotiations on access to academic e-resources. DEFF is satisfied with the outcome. It has, however, not proved possible to keep price increases in line with inflation at a time when libraries are under increasing pressure to make savings.
Concluding the 2016 negotiations, DEFF managed to continue keeping the rate of the price increases down for most of the agreements, which means that the trend is heading in the right direction.
While the results are better than previous years, there is still room for improvement if cancellations of more e-licence subscriptions in the future are to be avoided.
