B – Latin America provides new publishing opportunities

Anscombe N. Latin America provides new publishing opportunities. Research Information 2007; 30:6.

Duch marketing-services company Accucoms reported that Latin America presents many opportunities for publishers, highlighting the rapid growth in internet usage in that region. In Latin America online resources are becoming a significant part of libraries’ collections and librarians plan to invest in a wide range of resources like eBooks, online databases and journals. In fact, even if they feel optimistic about their economic position and future growth, librarians in Latin America are still restricted in what they can afford to purchase, so they appreciate models offering flexibility to purchase the content they need, in the format they need, for a fair price not subject to rises. So online and print bundles remain the most popular subscription option.
