Moving from print to electronic: a survival guide for Greek academic libraries
Starting on 1 January 2003, all members of HEAL-Link (Hellenic Academic Libraries Link, that is all academic and most research libraries in Greece) cancelled all subscriptions from 13 major publishers and replaced them with electronic-only access. HEAL-Link was established in 1998 as part of a project funded by the Ministry of Education and EU structural funds. HEAL-Link's aim was to revive the slow fading away of Greek academic libraries due to lack of adequate budgets. It not only managed to survive the termination of the its funding in 2002 but also expanded the number of electronic resources it offers to its members.
