Due to a pre-COVID shortfall in the 2019-2021 biennial budget we are initiating a review of database subscriptions during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.

 

Annual price increases for databases, journals, and other subscriptions are unsustainable. The Libraries received a modest increase in the 2019-2021 biennial budget that covered a part but not all of this subscription price inflation. The resulting shortfall in funding for subscriptions requires that we take a critical eye to all of our subscriptions.

 

We are starting this review of subscriptions with databases this fiscal year and will be considering factors such as price, overlap with other resources in content and use, and usage of the resource. A list of planned cancellations will be posted here.

 

Please send any comments on any of the planned cancellations to: cmslib@uw.edu
