Ithaka S+R partnered with 11 academic libraries to understand researcher behavior and perceptions to help inform their ongoing strategic decision-making about Big Deal journal subscriptions. The project’s lead researchers, Oya Y. Rieger and Danielle Cooper, will highlight key findings from the study and its potential implications for libraries.
