print periodicals - usage and space Crank, Richard L 05 Jan 2005 16:13 UTC

As with many libraries, our current print periodicals and print newspapers
are used less and less as online access, whether fee-based or free,
increases.  In response to this trend, we are taking a fresh look at the
space in which they're housed, our "Periodicals Room."  It would be
helpful to know what other libraries are doing.  What changes have you
made recently in how you shelve, display, handle, and generally provide
physical access to print journals and newspapers?
