Re: Print journal issues - What are you doing with them? Wilma Dague 26 Sep 2008 21:55 UTC
It depends on the journal. Most of our electronic subscriptions have a year or so embargo, so we keep the print until the electronic is available. Things with lots of pictures, like Smithsonian, we keep on the shelves and then bind. We keep the print for a while in almost every case, because we have a traditional community and they prefer it. We still check in everything, but I only claim issues of volumes that we bind.

We just receive print & online formats of those titles for which online is included at no extra cost.
We do check in the print. Although we have no hard and fast policy on binding them, we have cut our bindery budget drastically, leaving us binding very very few things - of necessity, those that we see as having a long life on the shelves.

*Please excuse cross-postings.*
I was wondering if those of you who receive both print and electronic
for a journal title:
1. Keep the print issues for that journal?
2. If you keep the issues, do you check them it?
3. If you keep the issues, so you bind them?
Any information that can be provided would be helpful.
