Purpose – To identify which library services could be provided on a fee‐based model in Pakistan. Design/methodology/approach – 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. Findings – 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. 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.
