$ 156.63 per footnote

In order to effect certain budget cuts, we are looking at all journal renewals.  One particular law journal just went up 20%, to an annual subscription of $ 696.00.  It routes to no one.  It’s been cited only eight times in law review footnotes in the last two years.  No way we’re keeping this one.  Double-digit price increases are an outrage, and will be given the closest scrutiny here.
