Enrolled vs. Accessed on Ereserves

← Return to forum

  • My ereserves staff had an idea. I think it's a good one, and it sure would save money. However, publishers would not like it for that very reason!

    What if we could pay copyright fees on the number of times an ereserves article is actually accessed instead of how many students are enrolled in the course? This would be more similar to how we pay royalties on copyright. To me, and to my staff, this is a more realistic model.


  • An argument I can see publishers using is that one person could access the article and print out multiple copies--one for every class member.
