Department Journal Review
Each academic department will undergo an electronic journal subscription review and assessment every few years to ensure that our journal subscriptions support the teaching and research needs of our faculty and students. Usage statistics and Interlibrary Loan data will be used to measure each journal’s value and relevance. Faculty are invited to participate in the evaluation process and share their subject and curricular expertise.
