Serials Cancellations
FY 1988
Effective January 1, 1988

From a memo to Library faculty from Collection Management Officer William T. O’Malley in October 1987.:

“The Library has completed the first phase of its review of journal costs. As reported earlier, we are attempting to reduce the rate of increase in projected costs by $100,000 over a two year period. During the 86/87 academic year the Library spent over $875,000 on current subscriptions and has allocated $1,010,000 this year, and $1.1 million for next year. In order to stay within this budget, we must reduce present costs by $65,000 this year and $35,000 next  year. After consultation with department chairpersons in August and September, we have cancelled our subscriptions to the journals cited on the list which follows.

We are already engaged in the second phase of the project (i.e., finding an additional $35,000 in reductions). We will be sending to all departments, before December, a list of journals which have been deferred for cancellation for one year (on original August 1987 list.) This list will include journals which have been recommended by departments as alternatives for cancellation, additional titles of newspapers and duplicate subscriptions in order to elicit further response by the university community before final action is taken.”
