The Library has faced a flat collections budget since the 2000-01 fiscal year and yearly inflationary price increases as high as 20%. These increases force the Library to find ways to cut expenditures while maintaining a current, comprehensive collection. In the 2004-05 fiscal year, the Library had to cut approximately $120,000 in collections expenses. This cut was necessary in order for us to both meet inflationary price increases and to purchase key new online resources.
This website is designed to make you aware of the issues affecting the library budget and to encourage your participation in the solutions. To learn more about why cancellations are necessary, please visit the other areas of the Scholarly Publication section.
The Library's decisions are available regarding journals proposed for cancellation or a change of format in 2005. This list was finalized based on feedback solicited during August and September of 2004. See 2005 Library Journal Decisions (PDF).
As of March 2005, the UC Libraries have a new agreement with Blackwell for shared online access to almost 600 journals, as well as more reasonable annual price increases over the next three years. UCSF was able to maintain current access to all but a handful of journals.
Please send any comments to Anneliese Taylor, Collection Development Manager.
