Information Access Alliance Web Site

The web site of the Information Access Alliance (IAA) has been redesigned and updated. The new site now has a resource guide, a FAQs section, a news archive, and more details about the IAA.

The Information Access Alliance (IAA), established in 2003 by leading US national library organizations to address growing market dysfunctions in academic publishing markets, is particularly concerned about:

* insupportably high prices of journals and other serial publications, which leads to cancellation and reduced information availability;
* accelerating industry consolidation, which contributes to price increases and elevates barriers to market entry; and
* anti-competitive product bundling practices by an array of large publishers.

The new site is accessible at http://www.informationaccess.org
