Our #RacerScholar is Cris Ferguson

This week’s #RacerScholar is Cris Ferguson, Director of Technical Services at the Murray State University Libraries. Her editorial, “Learning From the Swets Fallout,” appears in the July 2015 special issue of Serials Review.


New column editor, Christine L. Ferguson, provides her first installment of the Balance Point column focusing on the fallout of the Swets bankruptcy in September 2014. This installment outlines the consequences for libraries and reactions of publishers after the bankruptcy and discusses lessons learned by libraries and other subscription agents. Several subscription agents interviewed discussed the issue of financial stability; the responsibility of libraries to understand the holistic financial health of their vendors is also discussed.
