Subscription Cancellations & Additions

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

SUMMARY, FY20-21

The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic on The University of Toledo has resulted in significant budget cuts across all colleges and departments for fiscal year 2020-2021 (July 1, 2020-June 30, 2021).  Unfortunately, University Libraries is no exception.  Our budget allocation for subscription expenditures has been reduced by $487,000 from the previous fiscal year. 

After taking annual subscription inflation into account, we are estimating that we will need to cancel about $491,000 in resources for FY20-21.  This is substantially less than initially anticipated as many publishers are keeping their prices flat or annual increases lower than usual due to the widespread and severe economic impact of COVID-19 on higher education.

See box below for list of the resources cancelled so far.  Additional cancellation decisions are pending over the next few months as all remaining subscriptions come up for renewal.  We will do our best to retain core essential resources in all of the academic disciplines that need the Libraries' support.  All cancellations listed below are for local (i.e., non-OhioLINK) products.  Access to existing OhioLINK databases and full-text journals and books seems assured at this point.

Please direct any questions, comments, or concerns you may have regarding these subscription cancellations to eresources@utoledo.edu.  We welcome the opportunity to respond and to discuss how we are managing our collection resources during these challenging times.
