    I have a question redraging digital publications, I have to admit they are still very confusing to me, so I was hoping you might be able to clarify. I work in a special library for a non-profit company in Ontario and I am the only librarian here. We have three journal publications that require us to buy site or viewing licenses. They range in price from $5 each to $50.00 each for staff to just view the publications on there own personal computers. We have a copyright licence from a company called ACCESS copyright. I was wondering why the library on a limited budget has to pay all these additional site licenses if we are already paying for a license from ACCESS?>> Any clarification on this would be appreciated.>
