Arrivals & Departures
As with all areas of the University, the library is facing a reduced budget in 2021 which has impacted the amount for collection purchases.
The library has regrettably made the decision to implement a number of cancellations to serials subscriptions. Cancellations have been informed by usage data, duplication and availability of alternative resources in a discipline. Cancellations have been spread across disciplines to ensure there is no undue pressure on any particular area. Other impacts are; we will not be able to purchase collections of electronic books or provide the same access to Kanopy and other streaming media products.
Unfortunately cancellation decisions made for 2021 cannot be reversed as this would compromise our capacity to meet the savings target required by the University. Where concerns have been raised about a particular decision we undertake to review that for 2022 without being able to commit to reinstatement until the financial position is clearer.
Postgraduate students and staff can utilise the Interlibrary Loans service to access journal articles.

The University Library will be conducting an ongoing, rigorous, analysis of subscriptions holdings, particularly electronic databases, to identify titles for potential cancellation. Cancellations are necessary for the sustainability of the Collections Budget and to allow us the capacity to purchase new subscriptions and other content that becomes available and is more relevant for teaching and research. There is pressure on the budget caused by a combination of exchange rate fluctuations, particularly between the Australian dollar and the United States dollar, price rises for subscriptions, and no commensurate increase in the Collections Budget over a number of years to accommodate those subscription price increases. We will strive to minimise inconvenience to our student and academic colleagues but some impact cannot be avoided.
The process we will follow is outlined below:
- Databases with high percentage of duplicated titles identified
- Usage in the last two years analysed
- Availability and coverage of duplicated titles in other databases analysed
- Databases identified for cancellation will be listed on this site on an ongoing basis
- Newly acquired databases will also be listed on this site on an ongoing basis
- New cancellations and purchases will be advertised via your Liaison Librarian and the library's social media channels
