Dear Liblicense members,
I would like to know your opinion on perpetual access terms for
secondary databases like Web of Science, Sci-Finder, etc. As we are
aware that unlike e-journals, these databases deal with current
information along with various value additions. Getting access to the
paid but non-updated content may be like having access to half baked
information. My questions are as below:
Does it make sense to get a perpetual access for these databases?
What should be the post-cancellation terms for these kind of resources?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
With best regards
Sr. Library-cum-Information Officer
