Subscription Additions & Cancellations : Home

This guide provides information on Spalding University Library's annual subscription additions and cancellations .

Statement

Spalding University librarians recognize the importance of electronically-accessible resources for Spalding students conducting coursework in the virtual environment.  We are prioritizing renewal and purchase of resources that directly support student learning. Librarians are also cognizant of the need to support disciplines as equitably as possible, and are striving to acknowledge both additions and reductions over all areas.

The Spalding University Library leverages the buying power of the Kentucky Virtual Library (KYVL) consortium of state academic and public libraries as well as the Federation of Kentucky Academic Libraries (FoKAL) in order to obtain lower-cost subscriptions to electronic resources. Spalding University Library’s interlibrary loan service support students and faculty in obtaining resources the Library does not directly own or access through a subscription.

Materials that are no longer relevant may be deselected and subscriptions that are no longer cost effective or of significant value may be not be retained. Electronic resource subscriptions will be evaluated for addition or renewal according to the following criteria:

  • Supports curricular needs of the university's degreed programs
  • Usage statistics and cost per use
  • Accreditation requirements
  • Publisher pricing changes
  • Faculty recommendation for pedagogical purposes
  • Fiscal support from recurring funding sources

If there is a resource you would like the library to consider for subscription or license, please complete the following recommend a purchase or license form. This page will be updated as decisions are made regarding renewal or cancellation of resources.
