The University of Nevada - Reno did this a few years ago.  A couple of
article citations are below:

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Give Up Journal Check-In.  By:
Anderson, Rick; Zink, Steven D.; Davis, Susan. Serials Librarian, 2003,
Vol. 44 Issue 3/4, p255-260, 6p; (AN 10735266)

Implementing the unthinkable: the demise of periodical check-in at the
University of Nevada.  By: Anderson, Rick; Zink, Steven D.. Library
Collections, Acquisitions, & Technical Services, Spring2003, Vol. 27
Issue 1, p61, 11p; DOI: 10.1016/S1464-9055(02)00309-3; (AN 9300623)

Hope this helps.

You mean you want to stop checking all of your journals in? How would
you keep track of what you have and don't have? How would your patrons
know where to find the information they need?

Hello everyone,

We think to stop checking in journals. I just wonder who has this
experience and do you recommend this? Any comments and suggestions would
be appreciated.

Thanks!
