University of Montana: Mansfield Library Faced with Another $600,000 in Cuts to Collections
From The Missoulian:
The Mansfield Library at the University of Montana is facing a steep cut of a possible $600,000 — again — and subscriptions and other resources are on the chopping block.
Provost Beverly Edmond said Friday that library collections may not have to absorb the entire amount. And Library Dean Shali Zhang said the cut has not been finalized and a review of subscriptions is underway.
But as proposed, the decrease could mean a 33 percent drop in support for library collections over five years, according to a memo from the Mansfield Library Faculty Librarians.
