$101,000 cut from Health Sciences Library journal subscriptions in 2017

The Health Sciences Library journal list has been updated to show the latest cancellation decisions. A total of $101,116 was cut from these subscriptions under the control of the Health Sciences Library – a cut of about 20%.

As previously announced,  book purchasing will also be drastically curtailed this year as a further cost saving measure. 

Subject and title lists of journals being cancelled across all the campus libraries  have also been posted and will be updated as needed throughout the fall semester.  

Contract negotiations are underway with Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, Sage and Oxford, and we will share information on the future of those journal packages as it becomes available.
