This presentation discussed the on-going e-resources review process implemented at the University of Maryland College Park. The University of Maryland Libraries (UMD), has experienced a static collection budget for over 15 years. In the fall of 2015, the Libraries initiated its first-ever comprehensive e-resources review process to address the current budget situation as well as plan for the future. The process started with a comprehensive database review, evolved into a serials review the following year, and continues to be adapted for each subsequent e-resource review process. The presenters described the process used to develop the review procedures, discussed how decisions were made and communicated, and highlighted the experience of a subject specialist librarian with the process.
