This has GOT to stop

The Stanford Law Library is facing a certain budget cut next year.  And, due to the “smoothing” of our budget allocation (each year’s payout is based upon a 3 year average), no matter what happens to the economy, the following year will see a budget cut too.  It won’t be easy.   So what to cut?  Some publishers are actually making the decision for us.  For example, take a look at the annual cost of the NYU Annual Conference on Labor (published by Kluwer Law International):

Vol. 51 – $ 178.00

Vol. 52 – $ 293.00

Vol. 53 – $ 365.00

Vol. 54 – $ 441.00

 

Can we live without the NYU Annual Conference on Labor?  We have no choice.  In my opinion, it would financially irresponsible of us to continue the subscription.
