Subject: Core journals

Like a lot of libraries dealing with the rising costs of periodical
subscriptions, we are looking at various options for the next fiscal year.

We have three questions:

  1) What sources have you used to determine core titles by discipline?
       We are a medium sized liberal arts college (1800 students).

  2) How do we find out about journals necessary for accreditation in
     various disciplines?

 3)If you have recently conducted a journal deselection process, could you
      please give us some feedack about procedures that were helpful?

Please respond to me off-list at

Thank you.
