Electronic Resource Subscriptions: Cancellations & Additions

This guide provides information on The University of Toledo Libraries' annual subscription cancellations and additions.

SUMMARY, FY21-22

The University of Toledo Libraries' subscriptions budget for electronic resources for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 (July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022) remained approximately the same as the previous fiscal year. The amount allocated from general University funds was $2,807,234. The amount allocated from the Libraries' National Endowment for the Humanities fund was $191,600. Total actual expenditures on electronic resource subscriptions for FY21-22 was $2,994,711. All subscription expenditures were for electronic resources. (University Libraries no longer subscribes to any print journals or indexes.)

Despite the static budget and ongoing subscription inflation, cancellations were kept to a minimum. This was mainly due to the availability of endowed funds to subsidize humanities resources and locked-in annual inflationary increases negotiated by OhioLINK for consortium e-journal and e-book packages. Additions of new resources were minimal as well due to the static budget.

See below for lists of resources cancelled and added in FY21-22. Please direct any questions or comments you may have regarding the Libraries' electronic resource subscriptions or decisions to cancel/add products to eresources@utoledo.edu
