The UI Libraries has published a finalized list of cancelled subscriptions to journals, databases, and e-books. These cancellation decisions were made after considering feedback from the campus community. Some titles were retained as a result of feedback.
Titles cancelled were low use, or carried a high cost per use, or duplicated content available in other sources.
We will continue to monitor requests for titles and we will also watch for changes in subscription costs in the future. Both variables will inform decisions in the future.
The Libraries saved $600,000 and met its budgetary goal for this year.
