Yes, we do.  JSTOR is a stable archive which we determined will have our titles available to us long-term.  It saves much-needed space; however, we do retain some titles on the shelves in print for two reasons:  1) high-use of the print journal and 2) large graphics content -- one title in particular contains fold-out maps too difficult to view online.

We have added our first JSTOR collection and I have a couple of questions.  I've noticed on my exchange listserv that JSTOR titles are offered.

I would like to know if your library participates in JSTOR:

1.  Do you retain your print titles that are availalbe in JSTOR?
     a.  Why?
     b.  Why not?
