  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......

Hi all,

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?
