Just spent an interesting 40min with an Anne and Eileen Following that Journal. Wow I didn't realise how complex it is to to either obtain or to cancel a title. It seems unfortunately that libraries are at the beck and call of the publishers who in these lean times are after all the profit they can get. It seems crazy that we have to continue to take journals that are no longer relevant and are unable to obtain those that are. It was good to be reminded that there is more than just registering journal issues as they come in. Ordering , payments, cataloguing and claiming all require time and expertise.
