Cancellations and Withdrawals

An overview of Gleeson Library's necessary cancellation and withdrawal projects.

2025 Library Database and Journal Cancellations

Gleeson Library | Geschke Learning Resource Center is planning how we will navigate the current budget environment in ways that minimize impacts to students and faculty. One of our strategies is to cancel a selection of our database and journal subscriptions.


In consultation with subject librarians who work with schools, the college and the programs and disciplines in each, we are reviewing cost per use data and other metrics in an effort to identify the cancellations that will have the least impact on teaching and research. With their input and supporting data, we will compile a list of resources which will be canceled over the coming months.

More information about the specific resources being canceled will be available by the start of the fall term.

Access to Resources

Cancellation of these resources does not necessarily mean that you will lose access to the resources that you need for your teaching, research, or studies. By canceling journal and database subscriptions as we’ve described above, we are shifting the model for these resources away from one of ownership to one of access. The information resources you need will still be available to you, but the route to access them may change.

Our Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) will be your go-to source for many canceled resources. By using ILL, you will still be able to access many of the articles you need, but they may be sourced from collections outside USF. Reaching out to your liaison librarian when you need to obtain hard-to-find resources is also essential. Our liaison librarians are here to help you!

The Library has made efforts to minimize impact on student learning, as well as faculty teaching and research. If you have any questions, please let us know.
