Abstract

This article describes an evaluation of Northwestern's economics journal collection. The evaluation process, which combined citation analyses with non-statistical techniques, resulted in lists of titles to cancel and to add to the collection. The article details the process and lists questions intended to help librarians decide whether or not to undertake a similar project.
