We are going to use Ulrich's Serials Analysis system.
Here is a snip from their website:
What types of evaluative information does Ulrich's Serials Analysis System
Ulrich's Serials Analysis System provides you with evaluative content from a
number of sources and key industry benchmarks. Your library's serials
holdings are compared against the Ulrich's universe of serials and a core
collection of must-have journals to identify your collection's gaps and
redundancies in more than 900 subject classifications......

Subject: [SERIALST] Accreditation lists
We are in the process of reviewing our serials titles for
discontinuation of some subscriptions - times are tough. We sent out a
survey to all departments asking for their input on what would be there
top/middle/bottom choices. I'm working with the bottom choices to
compile a list of things to remove. Not all departments responded and a
few of them - like Physics - have some of the higher priced journals
that have shocking cost-per-use stats. However, I don't want to cancel
something that might jeopardize a departments accreditation. Is there
some place/resource that I can access that would give me an idea of what
is needed for accreditation purposes? Or is it a case of "maintaining a
collection adequate to support the curriculum" kind of thing?
