Faced with a flat budget and an anticipated 6% increase in journal subscription costs, Miner Library will need to cut $27,000 from its 2011 journal expenditures. We have already identified savings of $9900 through the cancellation of print journal subscriptions. To realize the additional $17,100 savings it will be necessary to cancel subscriptions to online journals.
The titles of journals being considered for cancellation are listed below. Journals were selected as possible candidates for cancellation based on their overall usage, cost-per-article downloaded, and an analysis of other journals Miner provides in the same field.
In most cases University of Rochester users will continue to have access to past issues of cancelled journals. Copies of articles published after 2010 can be ordered through Miner’s ILLiad system for a small charge. Articles ordered through ILLiad are usually delivered within 48 hours.
We value your opinion and encourage you to send us comments that might justify the retention of specific journals. You can send comments to this News post or to Michele Shipley, Assistant Director of Digital & Branch Libraries (Michele_Shipley@urmc.rochester.edu).
