The Big Deal has been a major challenge at our university, as we dealt with budget cuts, exchange rate issues, annual increases to the costs of scholarly resources, and the demand for new resources in many fields. The Big Deal is a complex iceberg floating in the middle of all this. I've been involved in Collections for many years (I am currently AUL for Content and Access), and I'm looking forward to the discussion on exploring multiple paths to sustainability.
