Here at Hofstra -- we have a serials review process that is done within
the Library Subcommittee of the Faculty Senate. All our departments
come under review and all teaching faculty and chairs are involved in

and we've decided to include our database offerings. (Putting this
thing together is shaping up to be a daunting task.) My question is,
has anyone out there had experience with this and would they be

I appreciate any help you can offer.
