To identify which library services could be provided on a fee‐based model in Pakistan.
Surveying experts in Pakistani libraries, a questionnaire was administered to determine both the types of library services that could generate revenue and the viability of charging for library services.
Out of 32 identified information services, 12 were identified as excellent candidates for the fee‐based model. Another 16 were identified as having a better than 50 percent chance of success.
Identifies a minimum of 28 library services that may generate funds for Pakistani libraries if they are changed to a fee‐based model.
