The Libraries wish to thank the faculty for their hard work and time during the Serials Review that took place last academic year. Over a period of several months, faculty collectively reviewed every Library journal and database subscription and recommended a large number of changes. As a result of those changes, the Libraries gained the budget flexibility to add a significant number of new journal and database subscriptions and an additional pay-per-view service.
