UpToDate Remote Access Authentication
Posted On: Monday, December 21, 2015 - 17:23 by Brandi Tuttle

[Note: this post is about re-verifying your Duke affiliation for remote access to UpToDate and not the usual way to use UpToDate. Click here to access UpToDate.]

Proposed Journal Cancellations
Posted On: Friday, October 30, 2015 - 01:35 by Emma Cryer

Since the costs of journal subscriptions rise by 6% to 10% every year, we have to make difficult decisions about what to keep and what to cancel.  We look at usage, cost, and other factors.  We also compare titles based on cost per use of all downloaded journal articles.

The following titles are  proposed cancellations for 2016 based on high cost and low use, thereby having high cost per use as compared to hundreds of other titles. Please send any concerns about these cancellations to: emma.cryer@duke.edu.
