This requires a critical review of existing library collections and the next phase is to consider withdrawing the print versions of arts, humanities and social sciences journals available electronically on JSTOR under the UKRR scheme.
Please see the list of all arts, humanities and social sciences JSTOR journals here.
We are also in the early stages of planning moves for library collections as a result of the University’s Estates Strategy . This is work in progress but it is envisaged that:
- we review collections housed at Gogerddan library this summer 2010
- the active science collections will be concentrated in the Hugh Owen Library and research reserve science collections will be housed at Thomas Parry Library from summer 2011
- in practice this means that around 8,000 science books in the Hugh Owen Library which have not been borrowed for 6 years will be moved to the Thomas Parry Library and around 7,500 science books in the Thomas Parry Library which have been borrowed in the last 6 years will be moved to the Hugh Owen Library
