Library Budget Constraints in 17/18

The Library was asked to plan for significant budget constraints in Fiscal Year 2017/2018.

In light of this expected change, the Library will be purchasing fewer new books and will review any new journal and database requests with a heightened degree of scrutiny. It will also be cancelling several databases with poor usage and high cost per use, as well as a number of journals late in the year. Details are available in another blog post and will be further updated as more information becomes known.

The Library will make every effort to retain access to the most used content, and to add critically needed new resources on a timely basis. Our free Interlibrary Loan services will continue to provide access to any new articles from cancelled journals.
