Schonfeld, Roger C., Donald W. King, Ann Okerson, and Eileen Gifford Fenton. The Nonsubscription Side of Periodicals: Changes in Library Operations and Costs between Print and Electronic Formats. Washington, DC: Council on Library and Information Resources, 2004: "Our findings suggest that nonsubscription costs are lower, on a per-title basis, in electronic than in print format. The per-title effect is more pronounced at smaller libraries, mainly because they license relatively large collections of electronic titles in comparison to the size of their print collections. Relative to collection size, however, the cost benefits of the electronic format exist across the board."
