serials cancellation Dawn_Bick@LIBRARY.TMC.EDU 14 Jan 1992 22:06 UTC

In 1988 we cancelled both Chem Abs and Excerpta Medica.  Since then we
have offered free online searches for the years which we do not have in
print format.  This approach has definitely been cost-effective.
Our approach to preparing "hit lists" for journal cancellations is
described in:
