The University of Toledo Libraries' electronic resources subscriptions budget has been cut $175,000 or about 6% for Fiscal Year 2023-2024 (July 1, 2023-June 30, 2024). However, the total dollar amount of FY23/24 cancellations will be higher than the budget reduction, since about 6% more is needed just to cover annual inflationary increases for existing subscriptions. The current estimate for total FY23/24 cancellations is in the $215,000 range.
Unfortunately, the $400,000 in subscription cuts made in FY20/21, plus additional cuts in FY21/22, reduced the Libraries' potential cancellation list for FY 23/24 to core essential non-OhioLINK resources. (We are unable to cancel certain OhioLINK resources that have been purchased by and for the consortium.) In FY23/24, retention priority is being given to high-use products and resources needed for program accreditation.
As of 10/31/2023, most cancellations have already been processed, with decisions about a few others still pending. See below for the current cancellation list. A list of new resources for FY23/24 is also below.
