I have not followed this discussion from the beginning but I would like to
add the fact that JSTOR titles are major research journals in the field and
that researchers often read many articles simultaneously from many volumes
of the same journal.  They need to flip the pages back and forth from
different volumes very quickly.  Although with the electronic format one can
open many windows to do that, but to flip pages is slow and to identify
which window is also slow with the computer.  In our effort to massively
weed our print periodical collection, we are not touching JSTOR titles even
though most titles are duplicated on campus in another library.
