Tian,
	I have canceled any title that received in microform and
electronic. The microforms are just not being used and we just can't
afford buying something that is not being used. Especially for the cost
of some of those newspapers!!
Best of luck.
Janet

It is time for our library to renew our microfilm subscriptions now. I
just wonder whether the other academic libraries still subscribe the
microfilms of the two newspapers if they are available online from
databases such as ProQuest, which the library subscribes too.

I am thinking of canceling the microfilms which means we will stop the
collection of these two newspapers since they published. I am not sure
this is a correct decision or not. I would appreciate it very much if
you please share with me about your libraries decisions.

Thank you.
