Responsible Collections Reductions Initiative 2020

Due to the financial challenges faced by Kent State University, University Libraries will need to make significant adjustments to the collections budget. This web page supports this initiative, providing details on process, resources under review, communications, and timeline.

We are approaching this initiative in two phases.

  • Phase I occurred June 15th thru July 1st (corresponds with July 1 renewal deadlines)
  • Phase II will run from August 25th thru September 23rd (corresponds with Fall and January 1 renewal deadlines)
