At the Science, Industry and Business Library, we recently cancelled more
than one hundred microfilm subscriptions due to a severe budget cut
resulting from the economic recession and Sept. 11th.  We will now bind
these journals, with the exception of JSTOR titles.  JSTOR titles will
remain (unbound) on the shelves for five years (the embargo period).  Once
the volume appears in the JSTOR database, the print issues will be bundled
and sent to our remote storage facility.

This doesn't exactly answer your space question, in fact it's the opposite,
but it does address your question regarding JSTOR.  Hope this helps.

Dear Colleagues,

Space is one of our major problems at our university as are most and we've
been weeding and considering purchasing microfiche for news type magazines
such as Newsweek, Time, U.S. New, etc. since they require so much space.
Do any of you weed journals that are duplicated in databases such as JSTOR?
Lastly, is there a database that has the news magazines?  You may answer on
Listserv or to me directly.    I'm fairly new in Serials and need to hear
from others as to how they are handling their space problem.
