Library Journal Cancellation Project

Cancellation Criteria

Print Journals

  • Is it available online?
  • Is it a core title?

Electronic Journals

  • What is the cost per use?
    • Cost per use is determined by dividing the cost with the journal’s usage stats. Consult your departmental journal list or call Acquisitions (410-704-4929) for this information.

Impact of Cancellation on TU

  • Is it a core title?
  • Are comparable titles available?
  • Will back e-issues still be available after cancellation?
  • Is it available in other databases with a 12 month embargo or less, or through freely available sources, such as the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP), of which TU is a member?

Other factors will also be considered.
