Abstract: Library budget reductions often result in serials review projects to eliminate ongoing expenditures. A staple of these review projects is the promotion of interlibrary loan as a means of filling demand for canceled journals.However, additional load on interlibrary loan departments could mean greater costs and longer turnaround times for article requests.This study examines interlibrary loan requests following substantial budget reductions at several institutions in order to determine what effects journal cancellations had on interlibrary loan requests.
