We're facing similar issues here, so I would also be interested in any
feedback from people who've gone through this in their libraries.

Subject: [SERIALST] Disposal of Abstracts and Indexes

Is anyone "letting go" of print indexes and abstracts for space and
online considerations? Ex., sociological abstracts or others. Some
librarians have a reluctance to discard for fear of cancelling online
products "in the future" and not having a fall-back and, thus, would
move to storage.
Any opinions and experiences you have are appreciated. This could also
extend to the JSTOR/MUSE type titles and what criteria you use to decide
what goes away permanently, what goes to storage and what stays within
