"Saying Costly Subscriptions 'Cannot Be Sustained,' Harvard Library Committee Urges Open Access," The Ticker - The Chronicle of Higher Education - http://chronicle.com/blogs...
Pull quote: “In a frank open letter to the Harvard faculty, the council warns that the library faces a subscription crisis ‘exacerbated by efforts of certain publishers’ to bundle journals into high-priced packages. The letter does not name those publishers but says that Harvard now pays almost $3.75-million a year for their journals. ‘Continuing these subscriptions on their current footing is financially untenable,’ the council says.” - Stephen Francoeur
