IHC journals cancelled

After broad consultation, the California Digital Library (CDL) has cancelled the systemwide license to the Informa Healthcare (IHC) journals. According to the CDLINFO News, three important principles were the basis for this decision: "the reality of UC library budgets and a mandate to reduce consortial spending, the use of clear value metrics to inform decisions of fiscal responsibility, and the need for sustainable pricing in the scholarly publishing marketplace."

Additional information is available on CDL's Challenges to Licensing page.
