In consultation with the University Library Committee and the Departmental Library Representatives, the NCSU Libraries is preparing for FY 2014/2015 cuts to the collections budget of approximately $750,000.

A comprehensive review process that included input from faculty, staff, and students has identified 709 journals and additional databases for cancellation. The revised list of journals and the list of databases proposed for cancellation are available below.

Further cuts to the Libraries budget will result in the cancellation of additional databases and all 904 journals included in the review, including the 195 journals saved from cancellation based on campus input and overall usage.

Please share your feedback on these proposed journal and database cancellations by May 7, 2014 with Hilary Davis, Greg Raschke or Kris Alpi, Director of the Veterinary Medicine Library.

While the review process has gathered as much data as possible to try to minimize the relative impact of collections cuts, reductions of this magnitude will result in the cancellation of important journals and databases that will have a lasting impact on the ability of the Libraries to meet the research and teaching needs of the university.

An FAQ is available that addresses a number of potential questions about the collections review including the Libraries’ commitment to document delivery for canceled titles, moving journal titles to electronic only to realize savings on subscriptions, and the timeline for the overall process.
