Abstract

Discusses the user pay approach in Australia with particular reference to Government publications. Notes that although the Australian Government Publishing Service (AGPS) has been increasing its prices gradually it still provides free deposit copies of all its publications to the State and many university libraries. Concludes that government policies are being driven by economic crisis and appeals to the principles of free information and equality of access are perceived by politicians and administrators as being unrealistic.
