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.
