Library to cut foreign books
By WENDY SHARP
Due to price hikes by foreign
publishing companies, University
libraries will cut acquisitions of
foreign books and journals next
year by 10 percent, according to
Richard Dougherty, director of
These cutbacks, which will
affect journals more than books,
will total approximately $500,000,
According to Dougherty,
European publishing firms are
increasing prices. He attributed the
price hikes to the small number of
companies controlling the market,
and predicted the situation may
worsen in the future.
Dougherty said some foreign
publishers have boosted prices by
100 percent in the last two years.
One journal's price increased by
177 percent, he said.
Dougherty has also noticed a
price differential between what
foreign publishing companies
charge for journals in their own
country and what they charge in the
United States. According to
Dougherty, foreign publishers argue
that marketing and distributing
costs are causing the increases.
Decisions about the periodicals
and books to be cut will be made
by personnel in each library, said
Barbara MacAdam, head of the
Undergraduate Library. "Each
library unit is looking at their
collection and is involved in
communication with faculty."
William Stebbins, chair of the
Senate Advisory Community on
University Affairs, said the libraries
do not have a choice. "They've been
squeezed by the publishers and
they're doing the only thing they
can do," Stebbins said. "It's going
to be rough on the faculty."
"Ultimately the cuts will affect
everyone," MacAdam said. The
reduction in available foreign
journals will be difficult for faculty
members, MacAdam said, but she
has also noticed more students
using such journals for research in

The higher occupancy rate placed
a greater stress on staff, Warren
said, as they tried to respond to the
higher demand. Fifty-six new

the new building, are unfilled, as

The hospital is vulnerable to

government decreases the amount
the hospital receives for graduate
medical education, the hospital
would be hurt, says Warren,
