Space for serials growth Linda K. Heimburger 08 Feb 2006 22:08 UTC

            Hello all,

Do any of you have a "rule of thumb" about how much shelf space (i.e, inches or  Princeton files)  is GENERALLY needed for

Subscriptions?   I understand some journals can be almost 2" thick, while magazines only ½", but is there a general rule of thumb for

Space needed for monthly, bi-monthly, quarterly, weekly, serials, etc.?

I am shifting our periodicals and am trying to allow space for at least 3 years of growth for most titles.

Please respond to me at

Thank you!
