eResource Cancellations - uCentral and Annual Reviews

Every year the library reviews its journal and database subscriptions to ensure that titles are continuing to be used. This annual review of subscriptions allows the library to stay within budget while freeing some funds to add new titles requested by students and faculty.

For the 2015-16 fiscal year the library will be cancelling uCentral and Annual Reviews. These resources have shown consistent low usage over the past few years.

Our subscription to uCentral will expire on September 11th, 2015. One of the eBooks available in uCental, The Harriet Lane Handbook, will now be available through EBSCO. The direct link is http://proxy.westernu.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=nlebk&AN=974418&site=eds-live&ebv=EB&ppid=pp_Cover.

Our subscription to Annual Reviews will expire on December 31st, 2015. For titles not owned by the library or titles that have been cancelled, interlibrary loan is available to obtain articles or books from lending libraries around the country.
