As education institutions worldwide face the realities of global economic trends that have become prominent in the twenty-first century, many of them struggle to find ways to continue to provide quality services to their clients. One service that has been affected is offerings by libraries providing informational support for those engaged in teaching and learning at these institutions, including the online offerings. Among the challenges are budgetary cuts affecting how this service is provided. This article describes how a library located on one of the campuses of a regional university went about dealing with the problems that surfaced when it was faced with substantial cuts to its budget, and the measures it put in place to ensure any negative impacts of these cuts on its online resources were minimized.
