Library Resource Evaluation: Home-Start Here!

This page is used to share information on library resources that are under current evaluation by the Database Evaluation Group.

Welcome

Welcome to the Library Resource Evaluation research guide!  On this guide, resources that are underperforming** are listed in hopes to raise awareness of the resources and promote their usage.  Please consider integrating these resources into your instruction, classwork, and research.  Due to stagnant budgets and increasing subscription costs, any resource exhibiting poor usage will be considered for cancellation at renewal time.  If these resources are important to you, please use and support them!

**Note: We consider anything over $25 cost per use as underperforming.  We look at both calendar year usage and year-over-over trends.
