Serials cancellations/Facutly input Carmel Yurochko 15 Oct 2008 13:42 UTC

Please excuse any cross-postings.

Hello to all,

I am asking for input regarding both print and online serials cancellations,
and faculty input on cancellations.  Please feel free to respond to me off

.         Does your institution cancel print/online serials solely based on
library criteria, i.e. cost and use?

.         Does your institution cancel print/online serials only after
consulting with faculty?

Is this done title-by-title or by discipline/schools?

.         Does your institution publicize cancellation decisions ahead of
the actual serials cancellation?

If so, what is the outcome of critical responses?

Thank you,

Carmel Yurochko
