Abstract

This chapter is based on a survey undertaken for a BLRIC/LIC-funded research project (RIC/G/403). It describes the models of operation of purchasing consortia in three library sectors (health, higher education and public libraries) and discusses present and future savings deriving from consortial activity. The effects of consortia on suppliers are discussed and future activity predicted. The views expressed are those of the authors, not of BLRIC or LIC.
