Another 16 were identified as having a better than 50 percent chance of success. Originality/value – Identifies a minimum of 28 library services that may generate funds for Pakistani libraries if they are changed to a fee‐based model. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Bottom Line: Managing Library Finances Emerald Publishing
