We also have decades of these titles, but I agree that the retention
should be much shorter.  Five years sounds about right to me, especially
since a number of them are also available online.

I am interested in how other libraries handle back issues of professional
library journals, e.g. Library Journal, Booklist, Choice, College and
Research Libraries, etc.,.  We have bound issues that go back several
decades.  The nearest library graduate school is 4 hours away and the
library staff does not read them.  Are the back issues purchased in
microform or are these titles discarded with only current issues kept?
