Disciplinary Public Goods

Libraries support a number of public content goods by licensing them or contributing membership fees. A mounting body of evidence indicates that supporting mechanisms are no longer sustainable in the long term. This session aims to present a range of views on what fits in the category of public content goods, possible support models, and principles that address collective action. The responders are asked to comment on these proposals and their feasibility. In particular, they should address funding/sustainability strategies and the potential disruption to the scholarly communication chain such proposals would bring.
