Final Reminder: Consultation Required on the Sage Journal Package
Memorial University Libraries is seeking feedback from faculty, instructors and students as it reviews the Sage journal package. As with Taylor & Francis, and the Cambridge, Oxford, Wiley and Springer publisher packages, the Libraries will analyze feedback from academic units along with data such as use statistics and resource overlap in determining which journals to retain from this package as of January 2018. Journal users are asked to consult the Sage Journal Package and submit a list of journals and the rationale, where possible, for retaining those journals by Sept. 15, 2017. Please send responses to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Libraries aim to maintain subscriptions to as many journals as possible, and provide alternate access to other journals in the package. Additionally, collections librarians will be contacting academic units and their faculty representatives to set up optional meetings for further discussions on the issue. More information on the journal subscription review can be found on the Memorial University Libraries’ website.
