CRL to Reinstate Several U.S. General Circulation Newspaper Subscriptions in FY03

CRL is pleased to announce that it is able to respond to members' requests to re-start U.S. general circulation newspapers. As a result of favorable negotiations with the vendors, the Center will re-start subscriptions to thirteen general circulation newspapers and acquire all back files for 2001 and 2002. Thus, the Center will have continuous runs for some of the newspaper subscriptions that were suspended in 2000 because of budget deficits. The funding for the subscriptions represents a re-allocation from other materials categories as a result of feedback from members.

The specific newspapers were selected on the basis of circulation and in consultation with the Center's Collections and Services Advisory Panel. If resources are available and opportunities occur to re-start additional subscriptions that were suspended, the Center will do so, based on the priorities set through discussions with the Collections and Services Advisory Panel.
