MCW Libraries Resource Cancellation Survey 2012
Given FY13 budget realities and the current cost estimates from our journal and database vendors, some databases and journals will need to be cancelled. At this time, we anticipate cuts ranging between $150,000 to $200,000.
The Faculty Library Committee and Library Administration are conducting a survey to determine the importance of some of the journals and databases the library currently subscribes to that are candidates for cancellation due to cost-per-use, relatively low use or duplication of other resources. We are conducting the survey now so the library has time to give required cancellation notice to vendors/publishers.
Note: Within the survey, resources not marked will be assumed to be NOT important to your work.
Feedback from the survey will help us assure that library funding is allocated where it counts to support your role in achieving the educational, research, clinical and community service missions of the College and its primary affiliated hospitals, Froedtert Hospital and Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.
