Right-Pricing Digital Content by Christopher Harris

  • I love living and working in rural Western New York, but the schools and libraries in my geographic area are facing daunting challenges in the shift to digital content. E-content is often priced on a site-based basis, and that means our small school libraries end up paying an inequitably high price. The 22 school districts in the School Library System where I work serve a total of only about 24,000 students. Our largest district has 2,500 K–12 students and our smallest K–12 district educates just under 500 students. Not building, district. In comparison, the average school district size in New York State is about 4,000 students.
