Spending Constraints in Butler Library

Given the financial hardship on campus during the COVID-19 closure, Butler Library, along with other departments, has been asked to reduce its spending costs in anticipation of an expected budget shortfall.

Consequently, we must make difficult decisions for the renewal of library resources, and regrettably may need to cancel some high-cost products until we can confirm budget stability. 

Librarians and staff members will put forth every effort to justify our costs based on historical feedback from faculty and departments, and we promise to review any reduced services a year from now when more reliable financial forecasts are available.

To date, the following packages have been canceled because of low use or duplication:

American National Biography
Country Watch
Drama Online
Grove Art Online
Oxford Bibliographies – Environmental Science
Oxford Bibliographies – Latin American Studies
Oxford Dictionary of National Biography
Twentieth Century North American Drama
