Subscribing to a journal or a standing order represents an ongoing commitment of funds and staff time. Some of the criteria used for selection are therefore different from those used in the selection of one-off items.
Responsibility for selection lies with Library subject staff, in consultation with academic staff. They will include the following criteria when considering new journal subscriptions:
Library and academic staff should bear in mind that increasing overall spending on journal subscriptions and standing orders correspondingly reduces the proportion of the materials budget that is available for books in that subject area.
Journal subscriptions and standing orders will be regularly reviewed in the light of ongoing relevance, quality and cost in close consultation with academics.
Journals are for reference only.
