Journal Collections Deselection Process

Journal Collections Deselection Process

The University Libraries invite faculty to participate in our data-driven decision-making process for eliminating duplicate and low-use print content from the libraries' collections. Driven by plans to merge the Health Sciences Library collections and personnel into the Reinert Library space by the end of 2023, journal content deselection is the first phase of the project. The second phase, print book deselection, will begin in the Fall.

The list is available for your review at https://culibraries.creighton.edu/journals2021. This site contains explanations of the process and data elements, as well as an online form to submit your feedback.

We ask that you provide feedback no later than June 1, 2021.

Libraries seek faculty input on collections

Libraries seek faculty input on collections

The University Libraries seek to engage with faculty on annual changes to library collections. The cost of subscription resources, such as journals and databases, continues to outpace annual increases to the collections budget. Faculty are invited to review a list of resources considered for cancellation and make recommendations for new resources using the new library collections webpage. All comments and recommendations received before Dec. 21 will be considered. Faculty are encouraged to provide detailed justification for retaining resources considered for cancellation and/or adding new resources, as we will have to advocate for a collections budget increase. The collection development committee seeks feedback on this new process, which can be submitted on the same webpage.

  • In compliance with University Building Access Guidelines, access to the Creighton University Libraries (Reinert & Health Sciences) is limited to current Creighton students, faculty, and staff, with CU ID.
  • Furniture has been spaced to allow for social distancing, resulting in fewer overall seats.
  • Limited individual seating will be available for reservation using LibCal Seats; visitors planning to study in the library are encouraged to reserve a seat in advance.
  • All library visitors must be wearing masks, due to this, food is not permitted in the libraries at this time.
  • Most group study spaces are temporarily closed.
  • All library users are asked to use materials provided to wipe down study spaces after use.
