From the University of Arizona:
Due to ongoing, year-over-year inflation in the cost of journals, databases, and other information resources, combined with a flat information access budget, the University Libraries are initiating a plan to reduce spending by approximately $500,000 in fiscal year 2020-21 in order to stay within our allocated Information Access Budget (IAB) of $14.9 million.
Visit our spending reduction page to learn why these cuts are necessary, the criteria for decision-making, and our timelines.
On Monday, Libraries Dean Shan Sutton made a presentation to Faculty Senate about this plan. We are now seeking faculty and stakeholder input on a list of resources under consideration for cuts.
