I would like to suggest/request that the library subscribe to the Journal "Autophagy". This is a hot new area of research and this is the flagship journal. The website is online here.

Lynne Turman, Head ofTompkins-McCaw Library Collections responds....
Thank you for the suggestion to add Autophagy to the VCU Libraries journal collection. Many factors go into the decision to subscribe to a particular journal title, including reputation, journal impact factor, cost, relevance to our curriculum, etc. Because of budget limitations, we are not able to subscribe to all journals in a specific subject area or all journals from a particular publisher. However, we are very interested in hearing your suggestions for titles, especially in new areas of research. A personal subscription for Autophagy is available for a reasonable cost of $59, but the institutional rate that VCU Libraries would pay is significantly higher -- $750 for the web version with no paper copy.
We will place this title into consideration for new journals in the future, depending on budget allocations. In the meantime, please take advantage of the ILLiad service to obtain copies of needed articles.
