During the 2015-16 academic year, Western undertook a significant effort to review and reduce serials expenditures. Academic Affairs and the Faculty Senate convened the Sustainable Access Task Force (SATF) to lead this process.
This group prepared a report to determine principles, criteria, and processes for reducing expenditures on library resources; this report, and additional supporting documentation, can be found via the links below.
