ASERL Friends: If you have not seen it, I recommend you peruse a post on today's Scholarly Kitchen written by Rachel Caldwell at the University of Tennessee. It proposes a framework for evaluating publishers as partners with libraries and higher education - see https://scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org/2021/01/13/guest-post-evaluating-publishers-as-partners-with-libraries-and-higher-education. Rachel's concept reminds me of the "Red Light, Green Light" idea posited by Roger Schonfeld a few years ago - but Rachel includes much more structure in her proposal, and has done some "what-if" scoring of different publishers. Rachel was one of the members of a Working Group that ASERL hosted following the Red Light/Green Light proposal; it is gratifying to see this new thinking emerge as libraries continue to seek new and better ways to evaluate the content they purchase in the face of limited resources.
