University Libraries Proposed Cancellations

Last update on: |

The University Libraries have identified the following subscriptions (journals, serials, databases) for potential cancellation, effective January 2016:

List of Cancellations (HTML)

These cancellations are made necessary by the rising costs of scholarly information (journals, books, and databases) and by the need to cull lesser-used materials in order to buy new items that are in high demand.

Some full-text content will still be available, however, via third-party (database) providers. Please see our list of electronic journals to check the availability of any particular title.

We are also confident that our Delivery+ program and purchase-on-demand operations will allow us to provide material quickly when you need something we do not own.

The University Libraries uses a variety of factors to identify cancellations, including use, cost and impact.

We welcome your feedback. To ensure that your feedback is factored into decision-making, please email me directly using the address below by May 8, 2015.

On behalf of the University Libraries, I would like to thank you for your continuing support and understanding.
