The University Libraries has launched the 2024 Serials Review Project to address a possible collections acquisition funding shortfall due to inflation and possible budget reductions.

To participate, please complete the serials review feedback survey by April 26, 2024. Please submit up to 10 journals and up to 10 databases that are relevant for your teaching or research. Find more information about providing feedback and the timeline for the review.

Student, faculty, and staff input is crucial for informed decision-making in this challenging environment. The goal of the project is to minimize the impacts of cuts through a combination of reducing book acquisitions and canceling subscriptions to journals and databases.

We remain committed to providing the research resources you need as our collections are central to ensuring UNLV remains an R1 institution. We work constantly to maximize the value of the collections budget through robust negotiations with vendors to cap inflation and leveraging the buying power of our consortial partnerships including the Greater Western Library Alliance. Our discovery environment enables patrons to search and identify needed articles regardless of whether they are held by UNLV Libraries. And our Interlibrary Loan department can provide electronic delivery of any needed journal article from outside our collections within 24 to 48 hours from request.

For more information or questions about the project, contact Cory Tucker, Head of Collections, Interlibrary Loan, and Acquisitions, or the subject liaison librarian for your discipline.
