The USF Libraries’ collections support USF's teaching and research programs. Maintaining high-quality collections in an environment of constrained budgets requires an active management strategy that occasionally results in cancellations or access restrictions. Cancellations are preceded by a formal process involving analysis of usage/cost-per-usage, consideration of the resource’s strategic importance to USF programs, and feedback from librarians and faculty. Because some resources are funded through the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC), we must also manage periodic statewide cancellations that are imposed on the SUS libraries.
