We are (like many of you, I'm sure) pondering the relationship of JSTOR
its equivalent print backruns.  As physical shelf space becomes more and
more limited, we are considering the pros and cons of removing these
runs from our shelves (especially since CRL has given assurances that
will act as a repository of the print).

If you have JSTOR, I'd very much appreciate your input on a couple of

1.  Have you, or are you considering, removal of the print equivalents
the JSTOR issues?  If you have made a decision either way, please
a bit on what factors tipped the decision one way or the other.

2.  If you have decided to remove the print backrun equivalents, what
you doing with the current 5 years of print?  How are they physically
shelved?  Have you found a satisfactory alternative to binding?
