Libraries' Collection Development and Management

FY23 Collections Budget Update

The MU Libraries collection budget included enough new funding to cover expected price increases for existing subscriptions.

Changes and highlights:

Wiley offered an acceptable offer to return to a package subscription.

MU Libraries partnered with the Graduate School to reinstate access to ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global.

MU Libraries began a two-year subscription to AM Explorer using gift funds designated for the humanities. The license uses an innovative Evidence Based Acquisition (EBA) model. Librarians will assess usage to purchase ongoing access to the most valuable collections for our campus.
