Library journal cancellation review
Update on the Library's Journal Cancellation Review
On August 17, 2009 the Library began a Journal Cancellation Review. The project had three purposes:
- Fund the purchase of new journals that will support new interdisciplinary initiatives or major research/teaching programs that have been re-focused
- Offset the cost of "unfunded" inflation
- Identify resources for potential mid-year or FY11 budget reductions
The period for public comments on the Journal Cancellation Review project ended on October 9, 2009. Thank you for your input during the Library's 2009 Journal Cancellation Project. All comments received were given careful consideration. Most of the subscriptions to the Canceled Journal Titles will be canceled effective January 1, 2011.
Once we are informed about the final FY11 budget cuts we will make decisions about the potential reallocation of funds for the purchase of new titles that have been requested.
If you have any questions or further suggestion for needed new journal titles to support your disciplinary research, please contact Karen Lawson, Associate Dean for Collections & Technical Services.
