dc.description.abstractWashington State University (WSU) Librarians expanded the concept of a comprehensive serials decision database (SDD) first proposed by Metz and Cosgriff in 2000. Information about subscribed and unsubscribed serials was merged from the integrated library system and subscription agent, interlibrary loan and citation databases, as well as journal use sources onto one spreadsheet. The SDD, used for selection and cancellation projects, evaluation of electronic journal packages, and collection assessment, was recognized as a necessary serials management tool for WSU. There is a need for the commercial development of products that will replace this manual way of organizing information critical to collection development.
