We are attempting to create a formula to allocate our periodicals
budget. The basic criteria are enrollment credit hours and cost/
availability of titles within a discipline. I am very interested in
hearing from other libraries having done so.
I am also interested in hearing from libraries who have tried
implementing document delivery service to patrons in lieu of
seldom used/costly journals. We have introduced UNCOVER and other
doc delivery options, however we have met with some resistance in
our efforts to replace subscriptions with doc delivery service. Your
comments are welcome.
