Library News

In an effort to provide as many resources as possible and make the most of limited funds, the MSU Libraries worked with the academic departments to review the titles accessible through electronic journal licenses negotiated between publishers and library consortia to which MSU belongs. The licenses allow all members of each consortium to have online access to any title held by that consortium's members. Journals duplicated among several libraries were examined, as well as the journals to which no library subscribed.


As a result of this project, the MSU Libraries are planning to swap 36 journals duplicated with one or more partners for 61 titles that will be new to the license. MSU users will still have online access to the 36 titles through our consortial partners' subscriptions. In addition, 3 titles will be switched from print + online to online only. All our consortial partners will have access to the new titles being substituted. The changes will become effective in 2007. Any suggestions or concerns about the list of titles to be added or released must be made no later September 1, 2006. Departments should contact their Library Liaison with questions.
