In order to facilitate a large scale review of our holdings, we needed to put together a list of all of our continuing resources, including databases, journals and book series. This poster will discuss the process we went through to pull this information together and the different challenges that emerged as we tried to include useful information, such as price and usage statistics, about all of these resources. It will also include information about the choices we made about how we wanted to receive feedback about priorities for content that should be kept or cancelled at the end of our review process. Finally, we will reflect on what we would do differently if we had to go through this process again and how the experience provided us with some very useful insights into the usage and distribution of resources within our collection.
