Impact of Covid on Library Collections

All departments of the University are facing the need to trim their costs to accommodate the large costs of the direct and indirect effects of the pandemic. At a time when Georgetown is facing serious budget constraints, the University Library, like many of our peers, is unable to keep pace with publishers’ escalating costs or continue with our usual spending patterns. Toward that end, the Library has been reviewing collection expenditures and overall usage statistics, especially of content that is available online. During this process, librarians affiliated with academic departments have been consulting with faculty and will continue to seek their input regarding which titles are most essential to conduct your research and teaching.  

See a list of cancelled titles.

This list will continue to be updated throughout the fiscal year as resources come up for renewal and in response to adjusted budgetary requirements.

If you have questions or wish to follow up, please contact Meg Meiman, Associate University Librarian for Scholarly Resources and Services, or Ryan Johnson, Head of Research Services.
