We weed using print journal usage statistics.  Low use...........weed.

We do take online access under consideration, but print usage is the
primary determining factor in weeding back issues and cancelling titles.

The most difficult part for me is determining what to weed. Do you only
weed titles for which you have duplicate coverage through electronic
versions and are "guaranteed" perpetual access to the years that were
subscribed, even if you stop subscribing?

Is the only way to figure this out (perpetual access policies) by
researching each individual publisher?

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
