Grant Forward & CAB Abstracts Database Subscriptions Expire 8/31/2021
Due to a pre-COVID shortfall in the 2019-2021 biennial budget, UW Libraries initiated a review of database subscriptions during the 2020-2021 fiscal year.
Annual price increases for databases, journals, and other subscriptions are unsustainable. The 2019-2021 biennial shortfall in funding for subscriptions requires that we take a critical eye to all our subscriptions.
We consider factors such as price, overlap with other resources in content and use, and usage of the resource. The Libraries’ subscriptions to Grant Forward and CAB Abstracts will expire on August 31st, 2021.
