Serials Review

Dear School of Drama Faculty, Staff, and Students,

During the Spring Quarter, I advised you that an anticipated cut to the University Libraries materials budget would require a review of our journal, database, and other subscriptions with the aim of reducing our continuing obligations by up to $2 million annually. We are now nearing the end of this review and have linked a list of proposed cancellations to the Libraries Serials and Electronic Resources Review website at: The list, which is accessible to the UW community via NetId login, includes all the titles being considered for cancellation by the UW Seattle campus libraries, excluding Health Sciences. There is also a link to proposed Health Sciences cancellations.

The list can be sorted in title or broad disciplinary order, and it is searchable by title. There is a feedback mechanism where you may comment on titles you feel are essential or desirable to keep. The deadline for feedback is October 10.

Thank you for your help in this important task. If you have any questions about the 2009 Serials and Electronic Resources Review, feel free to contact me directly.
