FY22 University Libraries Collections: Process

Decisions Making Process

When considering resources for cancellation, data is collected to determine overall use and cost per use to investigate underutilized content or content that may be obtained more affordably through an alternate route. This data is a starting place for considering resources for discontinuation, to which input from liaison librarians and faculty is added.

Input for decision making

Collections Trends

The University Libraries review resources annually to maintain collections responsive to campus teaching and research needs while stewarding financial resources. Annual journal and database increases continue to outpace increases to the collections budget, driving cancellations of resources.
