We subscribe to several JSTOR collections and have not retained our print titles for those collections mainly because it helps relieve space issues, and we also feel that JSTOR is a stable institution which maintains a reasonable pricing model. We do retain titles, however, which are graphic-intensive or which faculty feel particularly strongly about retaining in print format as well as electronic format.

Subject: [SERIALST] JSTOR
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 available in JSTOR?
b. Why not?
