    Before you head off to enjoy some patio weather this Friday, check out these two articles that touch on the issue of library costs from two different angles.

    Library Journal has just released the results of their 2018 Periodicals Price Survey.  This annual survey provides an analysis of the library journals environment in the US, but Canadian libraries may still find the data and commentary useful. 

    If anyone currently uses or is contemplating subscribing to products like Practical Law or Lexis Practice Advisor, check out Jean O'Grady's piece on trying to measure ROI for these products.
