Re: Shelving Package Titles Idith Bar-Nachum 28 Mar 2004 11:04 UTC


In a libray that shelves periodicals under their titles (as we are), there
is no reason in the world to shelve under the package
publisher (and IEEE is the publisher in your example) - each title should be
shelved by its  NAME and by its name only!

The package is an ACQUISITION factor only.
