Evaluating a Journals Collection in an Academic Library

Authors:

Jill Lambert ,

Sue Taylor

Abstract

The recent public expenditure cuts have meant that many academic libraries are having to take an even more rigorous approach to their journals collection, rationalising their holding in accordance with static or reduced budgets. Making use of the voting method for periodical evaluation, this paper outlines how one library evaluated the existing journals and the demand for new titles in the field of engineering. The benefits and pitfalls of the technique are outlined.
