Re: Turn-Around Time for Journals Eduardo Gil 24 Mar 2009 16:09 UTC

Here at Montclair State University the mail gets to us in the late
afternoon, mail is open by student workers - newspapers and news
magazine issues are checked-in right away by the Periodicals Principal
Library Assistant - Date stamped by students - the issues go out not
even 24 hours - the rest of the scholarly and technical periodicals may
take 1.5 days before they end up on the shelves.

Ed Gil
Periodicals Librarian
