At my institution we do have some space issues so this past year we
withdrew the print volumes of indexes/abstracts that are duplicated in
the online databases we subscribe to. For example, we kept the earlier
years of the Social Sciences Index, Humanities Index, and it's precursor
titles, but withdrew the more recent years that are included in the
online file. We only did this for those titles we consider to be so
essential that we wouldn't consider dropping subscriptions to the online
databases. We don't consider inclusion in or overlap through an
aggregator's product reliable enough to factor into the decision.

etc.)? I'm inclined to hold them since they come in handy when the
computers are down. Please give me your reasons to hold on to them.
