A recent article in Library Journal, “What Does the Right Subscription Agent Look Like for Your Library?” by Michael Rovner, discusses how subscription agents increase workflow efficiencies and student engagement in libraries and why it matters where your e-journals and e-journal packages are transacted. The article also provides tips to consider when issuing a bid request for a subscription provider.

 

Subscription agents make subscription management easier, but how else do they contribute to the information supply chain? The article references how subscription agents provide one-stop shopping for journals around the world, and provides an enhanced end-user experience to help maximize library funds. These agents also need to be financially fit and able to invest in the technology and infrastructure to support them.
