Proposed Cancellations for FY14

The library, like all departments across campus, have a reduced budget in FY14.  Budget reductions combined with subscription inflation costs of around 8%, mean that librarians must cancel some of the library’s existing journal and database subscriptions just to remain within budget.  Below is a list of proposed cancellations for 2014:

Cancellations are not made lightly; librarians look at many factors and also take into consideration comments from faculty, staff, and students.  If you would like to request any of these resources be kept, send your comments to John Weed, Head of Collection Resources, at weedj@uthscsa.edu.

Quintessence Journals Now Available Online

Faculty, staff, and students now have the ability to access the following Quintessence journals, on and off-campus:

  • International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants
  • International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry
  • International Journal of Prosthodontics
  • Journal of Orofacial Pain
  • Journal of Adhesive Dentistry
  • Quintessence International

If you have any questions regarding access, please contact Dana Whitmire, Electronic Resources/Serials Librarian at whitmired@uthscsa.edu.
