The Library has recently begun a formal resource review process which will culminate at the end of the fiscal year. In these uncertain financial times, it is imperative that we allocate our money in a way that will provide the best tools for the majority of the users. While we are using this review process primarily to identify candidates for cancelation, it also allows us to identify potential new acquisitions. Below is the results of the first quarter review decisions. The resources that are being reviewed in the second quarter will be under a separate post. If you would like to recommend a comparable resource to one on the list, if you feel strongly about an item marked for cancelation, or if your department would like to sponsor a resource, please feel free to contact me or your department’s liaison.
