University consolidations do more than just affect students and faculty. Changes to the make-up of a campus and the programs available can have a great influence on needed journal and database subscriptions. This session, presented by the Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian from Augusta University and the Outreach Coordinator from JSTOR, will look at how the consolidation of two universities with different academic missions is reflected in the usage of the six JSTOR collections to which the university subscribes. Using data that was produced in 2012, prior to consolidation, and statistics recently compiled, the presenters will analyze and discuss how subscription usage has changed in the four years since consolidation, factors that could be affecting usage, and the implications for future resources.
