Hardin 2009 Journal Cancellations: announcement and request for feedback

Due to changes in the Hardin  library’s collection development funding, we must reduce our budget by an estimated $170,000. Here is a proposed list of journals to be cancelled for 2010 by the Hardin Library. The list is in Excel and can be sorted by title, cost, index, etc.

Any requests to keep a title should be sent to  linda-walton@uiowa.edu. I will need comments back by July 24th. Comments should be made about titles that will impact the commenter’s discipline. In other words, a physician should not comment on a dental title. A nurse should not comment on a pharmacy title, etc.
