UA Libraries Journals, Standing Orders and Databases Cancelled as of January 1, 2007

The University Libraries have been informed that the acquisitions budget for FY07 will be $250,000 less than needed to support acquisitions at last year’s level. In response to this shortfall we are implementing the lowest of the three budget reduction strategies that were developed last spring by the Libraries’ bibliographers and the faculty in their assigned departments. We have finalized the list of cancellations with our subscription agents and they will take effect on January 1, 2007.
