Library Strategic Planning for the Transition Away from Print Journals
The transition of scholarly journals from print to electronic formats is affecting libraries and publishers in numerous ways.

Some key issues covered included responsive vs. strategic management of the process, special needs for journals from smaller publishers, infrastructure planning, and preservation considerations.
