Academic library administration: A case examination of faculty-librarian perceptions of journal cancellations and the decision-making process in a large, urban institution.

Faculty involvement in cancellation projects is often enhanced by a thorough explanation of the depth of the financial problems confronting libraries as a result of journal pricing (Barstow, 1993).
