Abstract: The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries are funded almost entirely by undergraduate student use fees. As the undergraduate enrollment has plateaued in recent years, the libraries' have not been able to keep up with rising costs, resulting in a series of cuts to the materials budget totaling nearly $4 million. While some of these cuts took the form of reductions in firm orders and dissolution of approval plans, for the past three years the bulk have come from cancellations of serials and electronic resources. With each year's cuts, the UNT Collection Development department has been forced to modify and refine their deselection process. This presentation will show the development of UNT's strategy for determining cancellations using a variety of methods (overlap analysis, usage statistics, faculty input) and tools (EBSCO Usage Consolidation, Serials Solutions 360).
