making collection decisions, electronic journals are always selected
over their print equivalents if they cost the same or less,” said

“As a result, our e-journal holdings will increase as the number
of print subscriptions declines.”
new databases with the electronic journals and newspapers are: Project
Muse, featuring 259 journals in the humanities, arts and social
sciences; Oxford University Press, offering 165 journals in life
sciences, medicine, physical sciences, humanities, social sciences
and law; Westlaw Campus, with approximately 850 legal journals and
law reviews, along with key state and federal legal sources; Wiley
