Too Dear for Harvard

TOO DEAR FOR HARVARD: Last year Harvard spent $3.75 million in subscription fees for scholarly journals--including at least one with fees above $40k and others in the "tens of thousands," complains the Harvard Faculty Advisory Council. "Prices for online content from two providers have increased by about 145% over the past six years," says the note.

Estimated cost for an undergrad year at Harvard (including room & board): $52,652.
