E-database: Where Can We Get Money for It?
- Blanka Konvalinková, Research Library in Liberec, Czech Republic
- Documents to download
Research library in Liberec does as much as possible to get e-databases. It is not easy because of the lack of financial capacity. The big amount necessary to buy these databases is often not included in the budget of the library. Consequently there have to be another financial resources, e.g. grant programmes, foundations, sponsors, banks, insurance companies, business firms etc. It is necessary to hold these organization’s interest in order to get money for the purchase of e-databases. We tried to do so and we succeeded.
