Print subscriptions redesigned

Due to the campus-wide redesign process Alloway Library has cancelled print subscriptions to 62 journals in order to meet the constraints of our budget. The good news is that the majority, 40 titles, are available through the library's online subscriptions. But even so, a few titles have a 12 month embargo which means there is a delay between when an article appears in print and when a TWU researcher can read in online. Three subscriptions are being extended for one more year thanks to subsidies from concerned departments on campus. Another 18current titles will no longer be available in any format.

Here's a list of titles affected:
