Halsbury’s Print Prices Shoot Up Again

A short post on UK LIS LAW yesterday reveals the sort of price rises Halsbury’s subscribers (print) are being asked to swallow this year..

A UK librarian writes:

Like everyone else, I’m grappling with the challenges of static   budgets, rising costs, and diminishing use of print materials in 
favour of the online equivalents.

This year, the cost of Halsbury’s Statutes has increased by 57%,  Halsbury’s SI’s by 44%, Halsbury’s Laws by 28%, and inevitably, I’m 
being asked to justify the need for the print versions when the   content is available via LNB.

Statutes by 57% .. that’s impressive.
