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, this means we will need to cancel approximately $660,000 in resource subscriptions for FY20-21.

The Libraries' Collection Services Division, in conjunction with library faculty subject specialists, has made numerous cancellation decisions to date (see below).  The evaluation and decision-making process will continue over the next several 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.  Access to existing OhioLINK full-text journals and books is assured.  However, access to a substantial number of other electronic information products important to a variety of our user groups will cease during FY20-21 as a result of this ongoing budget crisis.

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.
