Please note: the Library performs a review of periodicals and electronic subscriptions approximately every 3 years which involves campus wide input from faculty and students and updates the collection every year using that input from the review (and other collaborations) to most effectively manage available resources. The next review will be completed in the 2015/2016 academic year.
