Another thought or two...

Students are amazed at the cost of materials so work with
budgets/selection/cancellations can be eye-opening, especially in the
sciences.  Not to mention the complex decision process just to renew from
year to year.  Will we still have online access with our print payment? Or
is there a premium to subscribe in both formats? if so, how much? 10%, 20%,
100%?  Will online only save any $$?  Are we guaranteed archival access?
What if we cancel in a few year?  Oh gee, the publisher changed so now I
have to worry about a whole different pricing model.

I think your problem will be focusing on what you can cover in the time

You can also check out the sample syllabi the Serials Section Education
Committee of ALCTS prepared and posted to the ALCTS website for some other
click on Serials, then scroll down to the various syllabi

Good luck!
