Due to a stagnant materials budget that can't keep up with annual price increases for databases, journals, and other subscriptions, the MSU Library has actively been reviewing our subscriptions to ensure we are providing access to the resources used by our community.
When making these decisions, we are considering factors such as price, overlap with other resources in content and use, and usage of the resource. A list of any changes, including new resources, will be posted here, along with suggestions for alternative access to a specific resource that may not have been renewed.
If you have questions or feedback about a resource listed on this page, please contact Rachelle McLain, Collection Development Librarian.
