Library cost reduction strategy update

Posted on Friday, October 14, 2016

With information provided by the Canadian Research Knowledge Network (CRKN), the lists of titles being cut have been revised.  Links to the updated version of each list are provided below.

The list of individual journal and database titles being cut has also been revised; the Library has now met the total cost reduction target of $1.527M.

To meet the balance of the $1.527M, 375 416 additional individual journal and database titles will be cut from the Brian Dickson Law Library, Health Sciences Library and Morisset Arts & Sciences Library for a total of $683,174.  Access to some of these titles has already been terminated, while access to others will terminate at the end of December 2016.  

Please contact your subject librarian to discuss the status of specific titles, and to discuss alternative access methods such as Interlibrary Loans, or Open Access alternatives.

Please read the previous update for more information about the challenges and issues affecting our Collections budget.
