We always filed the issues under the current title, sometimes with a
book block indicating the title change.

Subject: [SERIALST] Title change question

Hello all,

I'm trying to decide which of two practices will work better for our
patrons. Our print periodicals are arranged alpha by title. There are a
number of titles in our print collection that have a some point
undergone a title change; not just a change in wording, but a completely
new title. In such cases, is it better to file the issues under the new
title separate from the old, or to keep the old & new together on the
stack where the old title is, with a pointer (such as a book dummy with
label) where the new title should be?  Thanks in advance for your
opinions & advice.

Best Regards,

Robert Weaver
