J-Store too rich for some learning environments


The Daily Texan:

"Unfortunately we do not subscribe to JSTOR because we cannot afford to get it online," [reference librarian at Concordia University Adrian] Erb said. "Library budgets tend to stay stagnate, and because of that we are kind of stuck."

Erb said that the prices are what stopped Concordia from subscribing to JSTOR because of the $10,000 down payment and the annual $2,000 fee to keep the database.
