Health Sciences Library Collections Review

In response to an administrative mandate for a budget reduction, the Stowe Health Sciences Library conducted a comprehensive collection review from July – October, 2016. The Stowe Library staff are committed to providing quality resources that meet the needs of library users across the spectrum – students, faculty, heath care providers, and administration. With this is mind, a thoughtful review of the collection was undertaken that began with the selection of 13 databases and e-book packages and 35 e-journal packages that required an extensive analysis to assess their value. As these resources were reviewed (see our Factors to Consider for principles and metrics that informed the review), they were placed into four graduated categories, ranging from low-use/narrow to high-use/wide, and redundant or unique information.

Results of the review were shared with the UConn Library Collection Steering Committee and the Storrs-based health sciences librarians for cross-campus input. Results of the review were also shared with the Deans of the Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine and the Vice Provost of University Libraries who sought input from the Deans of College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the School of Nursing, and the School Pharmacy. When identified cuts were approved by the Medicine and Dental Deans in December 2016, resources were cancelled. The approved list of cancelled resources includes:
