MCB University Press Offers U.S. Libraries Access to Database

Article excerpt

MCB University Press, an international management-journal publisher, has announced that it is building on its success in Europe by offering U.S. libraries a user-friendly electronic database that provides full-text access to the firm's more than 117 journals.

In other words, the total cost to libraries to access Emerald's full text of 24,000 articles is only $18,000, for a per-article cost of less than $1. The cost-per-use is further reduced by the fact that a subscription includes unlimited access for all members of a subscribing organization.

The Emerald Intelligence + Fulltext database will be freely available to libraries and users throughout March 1999.

These include general management, human resources, information management, library and information services, marketing, finance, property management, training and education, operations, production, and economics. …
