What the Collections Cuts Mean for You at the Health Sciences Library

This year, the campus is facing the task of reducing our journal costs by $1.2 million for FY2021, which amounts to a 20% reduction compounded by additional subscription cuts at the UM System level.

What does this mean for you?

  • We will be able to retain access to most of the high use journals, and the highly ranked journals with impact factors in the top quartile.
  • We will need to substitute interlibrary loan & pay per view for some of the most expensive journals, especially the ones costing $10,000/year or more.
  • The library will pay to get any articles you need in journals outside of our subscriptions. The image of findit@MU button button provides the most convenient way to request articles.  You can also submit article requests using this form.
