Journal Changes for 2014

Journal Changes for 2014

For more than a decade, the Health Sciences Library has avoided the budget pressures that have forced peer libraries to make significant cuts to journal subscriptions, but has finally had to do the same. The library was also able to add six new subscriptions and a medical journal database in response to requests from faculty and curriculum needs.

The first adjustment the library made was to subscribe to the MEDLINE Complete database. This EBSCOhost repository, built around the indexing in MEDLINE, includes 772 full text medical journals with current coverage without embargo, plus 1368 journals with a delay of one to eighteen months, and 379 with some period of full text coverage but no longer adding new issues. Of the non-embargoed journals in this and other EBSCOhost databases, 48 were also subscribed by the library. Of these, we discontinued 26; current issues will now be available on EBSCOhost but not at the publishers’ web sites.

Although nearly all online journals are used by Creighton faculty and students, the library identified and discontinued 32 journals, 3 monographic series and 2 CD-rom title with low use and high cost per use. New issues for these journals will not be held by the Health Sciences Library after 2013.

These subscription changes saved the Health Sciences Library $44,000, at the same time saving the School of Medicine about $6,000 in surcharges for access in Phoenix.

The journal titles added and dropped are listed here. Journals in the MEDLINE Complete collection are shown here.
