Dear Harriet,

We are an academic library. We used to keep current issues of all our
journals (1200+) in a display area alphabetically by title. Two years
ago we reduced this to a selection of roughly 150 current awareness,
popular magazine, and literary reviews, also arranged alphabetically by
title.  All other titles go directly to our compact shelving.

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
