Your feedback needed for journal cancellations in 2012

August 30, 2012

In the past years, the UNH library acquisition budget increases have not kept up with inflation. In order to cover inflationary increases and balance the budget for FY 13, we need to make cuts to our journal subscriptions.

During the summer we worked with academic departments to identify titles for cancellation. The selections were made by looking at cost and usage data with a goal of keeping as much valued content available as possible and minimizing negative impact on our users, while still achieving our budget reduction targets.

See the list of possible cancellations, FAQs, and more.

Send feedback to jennifer.carroll@unh.edu or use her contact form if you have comments, questions, or concerns. We will seriously consider all feedback received and use it to help make the best decisions possible. The deadline for feedback is September 7.

Featured Resource from Government Information: Cape Cod National Seashore

July 10, 2012


Government Information in the UNH Library presents our latest featured resource from the National Park Service on the Cape Cod National Seashore. This resource features sections on history, culture, photo galleries, and an area for teachers.

The site includes information on their residency programs for artists, the archaeology of Cape Cod, lesson plans, a reading list, and information about overnight educational group opportunities.

Henry David Thoreau knew Cape Cod well, once writing that "A man may stand there and put all America behind him." Today, part of the Cape has been designated Cape Cod National Seashore. Appropriately enough, the legislation to create this remarkable site was signed into law by President John F. Kennedy, who also knew and loved the area.
