We propose to cancel our print subscriptions to these titles and have online-only access 2009+. Quite a lot of money will be saved by this and then available to support new subscriptions, backfile purchases, etc. If you have questions or concerns about any of these titles or about the process, please contact Ruth Lewis as soon as possible.
Tohoku Mathematical Journal [we do not currently have access to this title online]
Book series which are all or mostly available on https://www.springerlink.com/books/ because of our annual purchases of the Springer Mathematics & Statistics Ebooks package.
Ergebnisse der Mathematik und ihrer Grenzgebiete
Graduate texts in mathematics
Grundlehren der mathematischen Wissenschaften
Monographs in mathematics
Of course specific volumes of these series can be purchased in paper if they are especially requested. We just won't receive all of them both online and in paper.
Lecture Notes in Mathematics Although we would no longer receive the paper volumes (shelved in Olin Library), we do plan to ask to have entries in the catalog for author, title and subject of each specific volume. That information can also be easily found online so of course we can stop adding those extra entries in a few years if you no longer find that useful?
While we are moving deliberately to online-only whenever secure online-only access is available, I am certainly willing to continue print subscriptions when there are good reasons to do that. Meanwhile, I will probably look over math subscriptions and propose such changes each summer.
Your Wish List? If you have opinions about what we should buy with the money we save, please let me know. Right now I think our top priority may be the convenience of online access to the pre-1997 backfiles to Springer math journals. This year's proposal does not save enough money for that but I hope it will begin to generate a fund for that purpose. Is there something that should be higher priority on the math "wish list?" Let me know please!
