The William H. Hannon Library maintains subscriptions to journals and databases that support both the curriculum of the university and research agendas of our faculty. These resources differ from monographs in that subscriptions require an ongoing financial commitment for the library. In addition, periodical publishers charge higher prices for libraries than they do for individuals, and price increases exceed the rate of inflation. The library evaluates requests using the following criteria:

  • Support of present academic curriculum or faculty research (specific or interdisciplinary)
  • Strength of the existing collection in the resource's subject area
  • Existing or projected future use of library resources in this discipline
  • Cost

The library reviews and renews its annual journal subscriptions during the summer, with all subscription dates aligned with the calendar year.

  • Submit journal subscription requests prior to April 1 for activation the following January 1
  • Database subscriptions may be considered year-round
