Biographical Information

Jason S. Price is the Assistant Director of Operations & Management at the Claremont Colleges Library. He earned a PhD in Plant Evolutionary Ecology from Indiana University Bloomington where he cut his teeth as a teacher and researcher before pursuing a Masters in Library Science. After spending ten years in graduate school, he thoroughly enjoys applying hard won analytical skills to current library challenges. His role as Electronic Resource Analyst for the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium provides opportunities to work with libraries, consortia and publishers to improve products and increase pricing equity. As a practiced dabbler, he enjoys being involved in as many levels of academic library teaching and research pursuits as he can handle (and sometimes a few more!). He has been publishing and speaking about ejournal and ebook usage and pricing since 2005.
