New Subscriptions & Cancellations of Journals and Databases
Dear Patrons,
 
In response to limited acquisitions budget, the library implemented many strategies to determine purchases of journals and databases, and to make every effort to minimize the impact on the NCKU academic community and its research, teaching and learning activities.
 
In 2020, in terms of journals, 149 journal titles are selected for cancellation, while 34 journal titles are newly subscribed and the “bundled” journals subscriptions that historically provided us with more journal title subscriptions at less cost have been adjusted to fit the budget, please refer to the E-Resources Gateway of National Cheng Kung University Library. In terms of databases, we cancel subscription of 7 databases but newly subscribe 15 databases.
 
 
Regards,
National Cheng Kung University Library
