Full Transcript: LJ’s Matt Enis’ Email Interview With EBSCO Executives About Swets Bankruptcy

In the past couple of weeks we’ve posted a sizable amount of material about the bankruptcy of Swets, a subscription service that supplies libraries with journals and other publications.

On Tuesday, Library Journal published an article by Matt Enis titled, “Swets Bankruptcy Recalls Fallout from RoweCom”.

For background, Matt spoke with executives via e-mail and the telephone from three different subscription services.

EBSCO sent their answers via email but Matt was unable to use all of it in the published article. He shared the complete transcript (3 pages; PDF) with infoDOCKET. We’ve also embedded a copy below.
