Serials acquisitions in the digital “future”: if it’s all online, what’s the problem?

  • Author(s): Osorio, Jennifer
  • Abstract: Open Access is being adopted at a breakneck speed in Latin America, much faster than it is in the United States or other developed countries. What is different about the model for OA in Latin America and what are the implications for libraries and collections? Are there dangers we should watch out for, even as we support this movement? Is Open Access in Latin America the same as in the United States? How are the models different? Given the speed of adoption of Open Access in Latin America, what do we know? What, if any, are the implications for libraries and collections of the rapid adoption of OA in Latin America? Are there dangers to the breakneck speed of OA adoption in Latin America?
