Library Welcomes Input About Journal and Database Review Process

April 05, 2019

The Library is initiating a journal and database review process that will result in cancellations for some low-use journals and databases. Titles that are slated for potential cancellation are listed and input from users is welcomed through the end of April.

The number of potential cancellations represents less than one percent of the library’s total journal and database subscriptions. The library cannot guarantee to honor every request to retain a journal or database, but the responses will be taken into thoughtful consideration as final decisions are made.

An annual journal and database review process focused on redirecting money toward new subscriptions that meet current and emerging university needs is being planned. This new process will not result in sudden major shifts in availability and will instead ensure that library funds are being used effectively and strategically.

Additionally, the Library is investing in improvements for interlibrary loans (ILL). These improvements, slated for fall of 2019, will include single sign-on for your ILL account and potential improvements in delivery time for electronic articles. This will lessen any inconvenience that our review process causes.

Review the list of potential cancellations and share your feedback with us .

NOTE: If you do not see a title that the Library currently subscribes to on this list, it is not being considered for cancellation.
