We are a university library. We display issues received in the past
week, so there is no set number on display at any given time. We
maintain no order in the current issue display. We use a system of
color-coded paper clips on the cover of each issue to let us know how
long an issue has been displayed.

RE: Browsing or Current periodical collections

If you have a browsing or current periodical display area where you
place a subset of your subscriptions, I have 3 questions to ask.  We are

interested in re-arranging our browsing collection and wondered how
other libraries do it.  Thanks for your input.

1.  Is the collection arranged by:   Title
                                                     Call number
                                                    Other, please

2.  Is the library:   Public

3.   Approximately how many titles are in the browsing collection
