Library Collection Changes FY24

Friday, June 30, 2023 - 14:31

Dear Colleagues:

The combination of an average 7–9% cost increase in FY2024 to Library journal and database subscriptions, coupled with a requested 4% budget cut, make it necessary to re-evaluate our subscription purchases. The hope is that through the cancellation of lesser used titles, the library will be able to cover the inflationary cost of rising prices and meet the 4% budget reduction requirement.
