Subscription Cancellations: First Round

The combination of COVID-19 and resulting uncertainty about enrollment and state and federal funding has necessitated budget reductions across the university, including VCU Libraries. In response, the Libraries must reduce collections expenditures by $500,000 in FY 2021 and $500,000 in FY 2022. Most of this reduction in expenditures will be realized by eliminating a number of journal and database subscriptions.

We will make every effort to retain highly used titles and those that exhibit a high value through a low cost-per-use article download. The journal and database cancellations will go into effect January 1, 2021 for most titles. The goal of the Libraries is to find alternative ways to access sources of content (for example through open access and interlibrary loan) so that faculty and students will continue to be able to get the resources they need for their research and teaching.
